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.

ANS members approve amendment adding YMG rep to board of directors
The American Nuclear Society will include a representative from the Young Members Group on its Board of Directors after ANS members voted this week overwhelmingly in favor of amending Article B6 of the ANS bylaws. The change was mandated by Objective Outcome 5 of the ANS Change Plan 2020.
To keep the number of directors at 16, the approved amendment decreased the number of non–U.S. resident directors from three to two.
Educational Session|Sponsored by Nuclear Supply Chain

Inventory levels at most all of our nuclear facilities continue to grow while economic pressures would dictate better uses of the financial resources. In fact, a reduction of inventory levels is desired without inappropriately increasing operational risk to the sites. Complicating the equation on balancing of risk is the increasing obsolescence of materials, a declining supplier base, digital influx in the I&C arena, and loss of utility inventories as plants close. This session will be a workshop in which various inventory management related topics will be discussed with the goal of a white paper for utilities to use as a reference document for individual inventory optimization programs. In addition, the results of this workshop will also be reviewed at the annual Nuclear Supply Chain Strategic Leaders (NSCSL) conference to be held later this conference week. Topics to be discussed are inventory reduction success examples, use of “repair warehouses,” critical spare identifications, End-of-Life stocking algorithms, and other issues now confronting our inventory managers.
