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.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

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.

Solutions for the RF heating problems in HANBIT mirror machine have been obtained by analytically under the assumptions of uniform plasma and magnetic field . For the case of non-uniform plasma and magnetic field, a numerical calculation for entire region requires considerable computing times and delicate considerations of the antenna current. In this work, we developed a hybrid method in solving the RF heating problem in which the outer region of the plasma limiter including the antenna is treated by an analytic technique and the plasma region is solved by a numerical method. Solutions for two regions are matched on the plasma-vacuum interface self-consistently without loss of generality. Using this method, we can reduce the calculation time and required computer memories and present some results for HANBIT case.
