Mitch Farmer, nuclear engineer and manager of Reactor Safety Testing & Analysis, was recently selected by the American Nuclear Society (ANS) to receive the 2014 Special Award on Enhancing nuclear power plant safety in response to the Fukushima accident. Mitch receives this award for his major, internationally recognized contributions to the understanding and modeling of severe accident phenomena in LWR plants and for outstanding technical assistance to Japan following the Fukushima accident. The award will be presented to Farmer at the ANS Annual Meeting in Reno, NV (June 2014).

The ANS Special Award award recognizes an individual or individuals for especially meritorious contributions in research and/or developing understanding in important areas of current activity. A different topic is determined annually by the ANS Board of Directors based on recommendations from the Honors and Awards Committee. Each topic is selected because of the importance to the issue with regard to the peaceful application of nuclear technology to all mankind.

The Nuclear Engineering Division of Argonne National Laboratory congratulates Mitch on this distinguished achievement.
