ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
The division provides a forum for focused technical dialogue on thermal hydraulic technology in the nuclear industry. Specifically, this will include heat transfer and fluid mechanics involved in the utilization of nuclear energy. It is intended to attract the highest quality of theoretical and experimental work to ANS, including research on basic phenomena and application to nuclear system design.

The Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.
Nuclear Standards News (NSN) is published six times a year and is dedicated solely to the news of nuclear standards and nuclear regulatory issues. The newsletter covers key events and issues in the nuclear standards field, standards actions, updates on publications, and a calendar of nuclear standards related events. The importance of standards on the international level continues to grow for the nuclear industry, and NSN endeavors to collect this information for you also. NSN provides an excellent way to stay on top of revisions, public review periods, clarification on ANS standards, and additions to industry standards.
NSN is available to all ANS members as a free member benefit. NSN is also a part of our ICONS subscriptions program but can be purchased as an individual subscription, as well. Subscriptions are available online only and require completion and return of an Online Journal Subscription Agreement. Access to electronic issues of NSN (dating back to January 2014) included with agreement.
