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.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

TVA gives up construction permits for Bellefonte units
The on-again, off-again plan for an operating Bellefonte nuclear power plant would appear to be off for good.
Nearly 47 years after being issued construction permits for two reactors at the Bellefonte site in northeast Alabama, the Tennessee Valley Authority has decided against renewing them, essentially extinguishing any remaining hope for the project, on which the utility has reportedly spent more than $5 billion.

This book presents concise views of current theories on boiling and two-phase flow and on supercritical heat transfer. The mechanisms of these two modes of heat transfer are compared and contrasted. The theories propose to interpret the observed phenomena from a mechanistic viewpoint, with supporting correlations and equations. Each subsection includes a summary and reference list, and nomenclatures are provided for each major section.
