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.

Nuclear power resilience in a changing climate
All 92 U.S. power reactors operating today need water—in the right place and at the right time. But extreme weather events, including floods, droughts, hurricanes, and heat waves, upend expectations and demand resilience: the ability to anticipate, accommodate, and recover from adverse impacts.
Resilience was built into today’s nuclear power plants decades ago. Weather data and climate forecasts not available then can be factored into risk analysis now to ensure the plants remain resilient in a changing climate.

The basic objective of this book is to present the principles underlying the thermal and hydraulic design of pressurized water reactors. In addition, the empirical data, engineering properties, and computer techniques required for design, but not available in conventional handbooks, are presented or referenced. Because of the many advances and changes that have occurred since the second edition, extensive improvements in both understanding the phenomena involved and in calculational techniques are reflected in the substantial additions to this third edition. Also, an additional chapter has been added to accommodate the many developments in the area of safety analysis. This book is intended to provide an overview for nuclear engineering graduate students and to serve as a reference for engineers working in the nuclear power industry.
