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.

Survey: Strong overall support in U.S. for nuclear, but with concerns
Results of the American Climate Perspectives Survey 2022 conducted by the climate-focused organization ecoAmerica suggest that the overall national support for research into advanced nuclear energy and for nuclear energy in general are continuing five-year upward trends. However, according to the survey, fewer than half of women responding to the survey support nuclear power. In addition, public concerns about nuclear-related waste disposal, health and safety, and weaponization remain high.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is increasingly used within the nuclear industry and research centers for a variety of tasks. Yet, despite its widespread use, CFD has many pitfalls that should be avoided in particular when modeling complex turbulent flows. After Introducing Nek5000 in a recent webinar – a powerful open source code, we embark in a four lecture webinar series on CFD. The aim of this short series is to introduce key concepts in turbulence modeling with a focus on practical applications in nuclear engineering. The first lecture will cover Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes or RANS turbulence models, which are currently the workhorse of CFD in industry.
Annalisa Manera, Professor of Nuclear Systems and Multiphase Flows, ETH Zurich
Since July 2021, Dr. Manera is on a leave of absence from the University of Michigan, where she has been Professor in the Nuclear Engineering Department for the last 10 years. At the University of Michigan she has established a research and teaching program in nuclear systems thermal-hydraulics and is the co-director of the Experimental and Computational Multiphase Flow Laboratory (ECMF) and the High Resolution Imaging Lab. Her research group focuses on high-resolution experimental techniques and CFD-based high-fidelity multiphysics simulations of nuclear systems.
