President's Profile Steven Arndt: Prioritizing participation and advocacy
Steven Arndt began his one-year term last month as president of the American Nuclear Society, bringing the same high level of energy, investment, and action he has exhibited throughout his career. Reflecting on a life spent improving nuclear safety and technology, he notes that it’s not just the work; it’s also about the people and building connections and relationships. Arndt fondly recalls Peter Lyons, former NRC commissioner, assistant secretary of energy for nuclear energy, and ANS board member who passed away in April 2021. “I have been incredibly lucky to know and work with some great people in our field, and almost to a person they have been like Pete Lyons,” Arndt said. “They have been gregarious, outgoing, and supportive.”
The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors Virtual Meeting
Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by Advanced Modeling Applications

The VERA code suite, the product of CASL, has been developed for the solution of challenge problems facing the Light Water Reactor (LWR) operating fleet. Within CASL, VERA has been demonstrated for a broad range of industry applications including analyses performed for core design, operations, transient safety and component fluence lifetime. VERA is now being deployed for widespread use by the nuclear industry with the issuance of commercial licenses. This panel provides an industry perspective on VERA deployment and use by the nuclear industry as well as future VERA development in the post-CASL era.
