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.

Stress corrosion cracking and welding nonconformities are behind ITER’s fresh delays
The ITER Organization is working on a new baseline schedule for the magnetic confinement fusion experiment launched in 1985 and now under construction in southern France. First plasma was scheduled for December 2025 and deuterium-tritium operations for 2035 under a schedule approved in November 2016 that will soon be shelved. In addition to impacts from COVID-19 delays and uncertainty resulting from Russia’s war in Ukraine, ITER leaders must now factor in repair time for “component challenges.”

The book Radiochemical Technology in Nuclear Power Plants is a revision of Radiochemistry in Nuclear Power Reactors, which was published in 1996 by the National Research Council. The revised book reflects certain changes and improvements from the 1996 edition. It deals with two types of light water reactors—boiling water reactors and pressurized water reactors—and includes a new chapter on radiochemistry fundamentals that provides materials for those who have not been previously exposed to basic radiochemistry in college. Also included are discussions of applications and more sophisticated techniques that have been developed in the past few years, updated data and information on activated corrosion products and radiation buildup control, and more details about fission product measurements and fuel integrity failure evaluation. In addition, at the end of the book, a number of exercises are provided for the reader to practice solving problems that may be faced during routine work in a nuclear power plant.
