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.

The computer program AVSYS has been developed to analyze the availability of fusion power plants. A parametric study has been conducted on MARS. In order to bring up the availability to acceptable levels redundancy is needed in the neutral beam injection, ECRH, ICRH, direct convertor, and the central cell magnet coils (one coil/side redundant). At the same time, an improvement in quality, maintenance, design (hence failure rates and repair times) is needed for the magnets, as well as the neutral beam subsystem and the direct convertor.
