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.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

The legacy of Experimental Breeder Reactor-I
At 1:23 p.m. load dissipaters from the generator were connected—electricity flows from atomic energy.” These were the words Walter Zinn wrote in the log after the first four light bulbs were illuminated by nuclear energy. The year was 1951, and the EBR-I was about to show the world what nuclear energy had to offer.

This book presents a balanced overview of the major methods currently available for obtaining numerical solutions in neutron and gamma-ray transport. It focuses on methods particularly applicable to the complex problems encountered in the analysis of reactors, fusion devices, radiation shielding, and other nuclear systems. It is valuable as a self-contained reference and text to practicing engineers involved in research and development, to users of large transport computer codes for engineering analysis, and to first-year graduate students.
