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.

Sher and Hobbins present the current state of knowledge of the chemical and thermodynamic phenomena taking place in reactor cores during the progression of accidents; the formation and physical and chemical properties of the aerosols; the timing and duration of the aerosol release from the core to the coolant and containment; and the physical, chemical, and thermal-hydraulic phenomena that govern the removal of aerosols from the containment atmosphere, which often result in only a small fraction of the aerosol being released to other parts of the plant or to the outside environment. Published in ten chapters, each chapter with a list of references, and a subject index included.
