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.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

Finland in Front: The World’s Likely First Spent Fuel Repository Moves Toward Licensing
The year 2024 is shaping up to be a historic one for Posiva, the waste management organization owned by Finland’s two nuclear power plant utilities, Fortum and Teollisuuden Voima. The company is looking to receive regulatory approval of its operating license for the Onkalo deep geological repository for high-level radioactive waste by the end of the year.

Machine Learning (ML) is a subset of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that is the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience (data). Deep Learning (DL) is a subset of ML that uses multi-layered neural networks to deliver state-of-the-art accuracy in tasks such as object detection, speech recognition, language translation and others. Scientific Machine Learning (SciML), more specifically, consists of computational technologies that can be trained with scientific data to augment or automate human skills. ML has been very successful in areas such as computer vision, natural language processing, etc. But its application in scientific computing is relatively new, especially in Nuclear Engineering (NE). This workshop aims at augmenting the applications of AI/ML in scientific computing in NE, and promoting ML-based transformative solutions across various DOE missions.
This workshop includes presentations from five speakers. The topics are listed below:
1: Introduction, Uncertainty Quantification and Scientific Machine Learning, Dr. Xu Wu, Assistant Professor, North Carolina State University
2: NeuroEvolution Optimization with Reinforcement Learning, Dr. Majdi Radaideh, Research Scientist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
3: A Machine Learning Approach for Scale Bridging in System-level Thermal-hydraulic Simulation, Dr. Han Bao, Computational Scientist, Idaho National Laboratory
4: Machine Learning Augmented Cross Section Evaluation, Dr. Massimiliano Fratoni, Xenel Distinguished Professor, University of California, Berkeley
5: Physics-Informed Machine Learning, Dr. Yang Liu, Nuclear Engineer, Argonne National Laboratory
