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.
Nuclear Installations Safety
Devoted specifically to the safety of nuclear installations and the health and safety of the public, this division seeks a better understanding of the role of safety in the design, construction and operation of nuclear installation facilities. The division also promotes engineering and scientific technology advancement associated with the safety of such facilities.

A call to action
John C. Wagner
Like many of you, I have dedicated my career to the advancement of nuclear energy. We chose this path because clean energy changes lives. If we want to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, end energy poverty, develop a U.S. power grid that is secure and resilient, and ensure national security, nuclear must be a significant part of the mix.
But let us acknowledge the reality of our situation. Nuclear power plants continue to close. New reactor projects are too often delayed by cost overruns and red tape. Not having solved the politics for a permanent repository, spent fuel sits at shut-down reactor sites.
We find ourselves perpetually running the hamster wheel, building paper reactors, and grinding our teeth as critics cloud public discourse by regurgitating old fears and clinging to the tired tropes of a bygone era.

There are 545 papers, 3 panel discussions, and 17 technical keynote addresses. Papers are arranged into seven technical tracks, including Fundamental Thermal Hydraulics, Computational Thermal Hydraulics, Verification and Validation, Safety of Existing Reactors, Severe Accidents, and Thermal Hydraulics in Advanced Reactors. The seventh track includes emerging topical areas of interest, and for NURETH-18, these are topics such as the Thermal Hydraulics of TREAT, FluidStructure Interactions, the Benchmark Study of the Accident at the Fukushima Phase 2, and the Thermal Hydraulics of Fluoride Salt-Cooled High-Temperature Reactors.
