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.
Robotics & Remote Systems
The Mission of the Robotics and Remote Systems Division is to promote the development and application of immersive simulation, robotics, and remote systems for hazardous environments for the purpose of reducing hazardous exposure to individuals, reducing environmental hazards and reducing the cost of performing work.

Predictions: What lies ahead for nuclear in 2022
As we begin a new year, it is natural not only to look back (see page 24 for top news stories of 2021) but also to look forward. Nuclear News reached out to leaders in the nuclear community to get their predictions on what 2022 has in store, whether broadly or for their specific areas within the community. Although the responses below are wide-ranging and varied, one thing is made clear by all of the respondents: 2022 will see growth and opportunity. The future for nuclear is bright.

Nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics refers to the study of fluid flow, heat and mass transfer applied to nuclear technologies. It is a discipline of fundamental importance in both design and safety analysis of nuclear reactors. The Thermal Hydraulic Division of ANS seeks to establish, stimulate, and maintain quality technical and professional approaches in all areas of nuclear thermal hydraulics. To this end, THD hosts a vibrant program that includes the largest international conference in the field (the NURETH conference series).
Research in thermal hydraulics in the United States is highly multi-disciplinary. Researchers apply advanced computational and experimental techniques to study complex phenomena In reactor systems and answer fundamental questions on flow and heat transfer physics. This research is of increasing importance as the nation seeks to develop and deploy advanced reactors, as these designs typically have several thermal hydraulics challenges.
This webinar gave a select overview of thermal hydraulic research in the United States and the role THD has in promoting the exchange of ideas and recognizing excellence in the field.
