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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

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.
