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.

Finding fusion’s place
Fusion energy is attracting significant interest from governments and private capital markets. The deployment of fusion energy on a timeline that will affect climate change and offer another tool for energy security will require support from stakeholders, regulators, and policymakers around the world. Without broad support, fusion may fail to reach its potential as a “game-changing” technology to make a meaningful difference in addressing the twin challenges of climate change and geopolitical energy security.
The process of developing the necessary policy and regulatory support is already underway around the world. Leaders in the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, China, and elsewhere are engaging with the key issues and will lead the way in setting the foundation for a global fusion industry.

ANS Members Only
ANS Members, please log in to watch this webinar.
Energy and environmental news make front-page headlines every day as floods, fires, and droughts focus the world’s attention on climate change and experts call for a rapid energy transition. In this exclusive members-only webinar, leading energy and environmental reporters went beyond nuclear to discuss the changing role of energy journalism and the challenges of connecting with the public on complex issues like energy, climate change and science. Moderated by Matthew Wald, the panelists shared insights of their trade, what stories captivate their audiences' attention, and what obstacles and barriers exist around the public image and media coverage of nuclear science and technology.
Matthew Wald, Independent energy analyst and writer, former policy analyst and communications consultant at the Nuclear Energy Institute and former energy and environment reporter at The New York Times
