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.

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.

The 2019 M&C Conference attracted top theoreticians and practitioners from North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, continuing the tradition of being the premier gathering of mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists, and engineers devoted to solving computational challenges in nuclear science and technology. These proceedings include archival versions of the M&C presentations that took place over four days in more than 35 sessions. Some of the topics the papers in this proceedings cover are, deterministic transport methods, Monte Carlo methods and applications, general radiation transport, computational fluid dynamics and applications to nuclear thermal hydraulics, multiphysics simulations in nuclear science and engineering, nuclear data evaluations and assimilation of integral experiments, uncertainty qualification and security analysis.
