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.

ANS Young Members Group Spotlight on National Labs
May 6, 2020|11:00AM–12:30PM (12:00–1:30PM EDT)
Available to All Users
Los Alamos National Laboratory, originally a top secret lab called Project Y, was established in 1943 as the center for nuclear weapon design and was the heart of the Manhattan Project. Since then, LANL has expanded its focus and now conducts research into many fields, including national security, energy, space exploration, materials science, biology, and engineering. It’s been home to over a dozen Nobel Prize winners, including Neils Bohr, Sir James Chadwick, Enrico Fermi, Maria Goeppert Mayer, Richard Feynman, and Hans Bethe.
The webinar will touch upon LANL’s history and some of today’s exciting nuclear projects and missions. Topics include LANL’s weapon design mission, nonproliferation, critical experiments, and space nuclear reactors!
