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.
Mathematics & Computation
Division members promote the advancement of mathematical and computational methods for solving problems arising in all disciplines encompassed by the Society. They place particular emphasis on numerical techniques for efficient computer applications to aid in the dissemination, integration, and proper use of computer codes, including preparation of computational benchmark and development of standards for computing practices, and to encourage the development on new computer codes and broaden their use.

The Rockwell Lifetime Achievement Award (also known as the Rockwell Award) is based on long-term or lifetime achievement in research, technology development, or education in the fields of radiation protection, shielding, or dosimetry. It is expected that most recipients will have been long-time active members of the Society. Moreover, most recipients will be authors of publications, who made significant contributions to the state of the art in the Radiation Protection and Shielding (RP&S) area.
This award will be awarded to an individual or group of individuals when working closely together and contribute equally to accomplishments no more than once a year and need not be made in all years. The award may be given posthumously.
This award consists of an engraved plaque and monetary award of $500.
This award was established by the Radiation Protection and Shielding Division (RPSD) in November 1986 by presentation of the initial award to its namesake, Theodore Rockwell, III, on the 30th anniversary of the publication of his contribution titled The Radiation Shielding Design Manual.
Nominations should be sent to the Chair of the Honors and Awards Committee of the RPSD. The Executive Committee of the Division elects recipients by 80% positive vote of the members present at a regularly scheduled meeting.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
The Chair of the RPSD then notifies the recipient after their election by the Executive Committee. The Chair will have an announcement of the award prepared for ANS News. The award is presented by the Division Chair at a suitable occasion selected by the Executive Committee. The ANS Honors and Awards Committee is available for consultation and support as appropriate.
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to email@example.com.
