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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

The Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.

The Current Issues in Computational Methods Roundtable will present five researchers who will give talks on several aspects of upcoming developments and challenges in code development and entertain audience questions. Points of emphasis will be the opportunities and demands of new machine architectures for Monte Carlo and Deterministic transport, applications of AI to high energy density science, and computational challenges for the nuclear sector.
Speakers and titles:
Erin Davis (LANL) "PARTISN: Enabling a 20th century Fortran transport code to meet 21st century"
Kelli Humbird (LLNL) “Cognitive simulations for inertial confinement fusion”
Alicia Klinvex (NNL) “Accelerating Transport Codes on Newer Architectures”
Rachel Slaybaugh (UCB) “Optimal Operations of Advanced Reactors: how do we get there?”
John Tramm (ANL) "More than a port: challenges in GPU-based MC and MOC particle transport"
