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.

The Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.

The Future of Nuclear Maritime Propulsion is the second in a series of sessions sponsored by DESD. At the 2023 Winter Meeting we will discuss the potential future of non-naval nuclear propulsion and floating offshore nuclear power generation, the opportunities for cutting greenhouse gas emissions, and the challenges with licensing these vessels for international commerce.
Recent Department of Energy grants have spurred interest in this subject. These grants and other opportunities will also be discussed during this session.
