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.

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.

In the last three years, fuel failures have been experienced in research reactors at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The first of the events occurred in November 2018 at the ORNL High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) resulting in the deformation of several fuel plates in the outer fuel element. The second related event occurred in February 2021 at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) Reactor where damage occurred in a single fuel element. While neither event resulted in significant radiological exposure, each of the affected reactor facilities paused operations to review fuel fabrication, training, operations, quality assurance, and other aspects potentially contributing to the events. This session will be a panel that will discuss these events, the associated causal analyses, planned corrective actions, and lessons learned.
