Nuclear power developments in China and the world
The development of human society and technology is closely correlated to the means of energy acquisition, utilization method, efficiency, and spectrum of applications. High quality of life and sustainable socioeconomic development require a sustainable and reliable energy supply. Wealth, health, food, water, infrastructure, education, and even life expectancy itself strongly correlate with the consumption of energy per capita. Having an adequate, reliable, affordable, eco-friendly, and sustainable supply of energy is becoming more crucial for economic development and improving human well-being.
Transactions of the American Nuclear Society publishes summaries of all papers presented at the ANS Annual and Winter Meetings, which are reviewed by the National Program Committee and ANS Division representatives. Only those papers presenting new and significant advancements in nuclear science and technology are selected. Topics covered include the following: accelerator applications; biology and medicine; decommissioning, decontamination, and reutilization; education and training; environmental sciences; fuel cycle and waste management; fusion energy; human factors; isotopes and radiation; materials science and technology; mathematics and computation; nuclear criticality safety; nuclear installations safety; operations and power; radiation, protection and shielding; reactor physics; robotics and remote systems; and thermal hydraulics.
ANS publications cannot accept papers from countries that are on the list of Sanctioned Countries and Programs, issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of Treasury, in the resource-center sanction programs.
