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.
2022 ANS Annual Meeting

Majority of Americans favor new nuclear plants
Pollster Scott Rasmussen reports that 53 percent of American voters support the construction of new nuclear power plants in the United States, while 31 percent oppose new plants. He further reports that 21 percent strongly favor and 14 percent strongly oppose new nuclear facilities.
The tour starts at the Talbot Laboratory where the department of Nuclear Plasma and Radiological Engineering is located. Here, students will get to see the Virtual Education and Research Laboratory and learn how virtual reality technology can be adapted and applied to educational methods. After, they will walk across the Engineering Quad to the Center for Plasma-Material Interactions where students conduct experiments on the stellarator-tokamak, HIDRA. There are also many other historical artifacts on display for participants to see. Group 1 will depart from the iHotel at 9:00 am and return at 10:55 am. Group 2 will depart at 11:00 am ad return at 12:55 pm
Group 1: April 14th, 9:00-10:55 am
Group 2: April 14th, 11:00 am-12:55 pm
Starfire Industries is located at the south end of campus and works with federal organizations such as DARPA, Homeland Security, NASA, and others. They offer services in areas like neutron radiography, fabrication, and prototyping. Starfire’s collaboration with government agencies and propensity for solving big problems related to plasma engineering make them a great place to learn about plasma processing applications. The tour departs from I-Hotel at 9:50 am and arrives at the I-Hotel at 11:10 am
April 14th: 9:50-11:10 am
Located in Morris, IL. Dresden Nuclear Generating Station was the first commercial nuclear power plant in the United States. Dresden has two operating BWR reactors, Units 2 and 3, as well as the original “death star,” reactor Unit 1, that can be toured.
April 14th: 7:30am-4:30pm
Triptych brews beer on a modern 3-vessel, 15 barrel, steam-powered brew system capable of producing almost anything our brewers can dream up. At any given time, they are fermenting more than 300 barrels of up to 12 different beers in a facility that has been lovingly dubbed “The Memery”. This tour departs from I-Hotel at 11:50 am and arrives at the I-Hotel at 3:10 pm
April 14th: 11:50-3:10pm
