Tseelmaa Byambaakhuu awarded Best Paper and Best Presentation at ANS Student Conference

Nuclear engineering PhD student Tseelmaa Byambaakhuu received two awards at the recent 2019 American Nuclear Society (ANS) Student Conference. She received best paper and best presentation awards for her article “Comparison of lpCMFD with Other CMFD Based Acceleration Schemes.”

Byambaakhuu’s research centers on stabilizing neutron transport utilizing coarse mesh finite difference acceleration. Her paper and accompanying presentation compared popular application methods of this approach with a new approach developed at Ohio State.

“This was an incredible opportunity to present Ohio State research to industry and research institutions, at the same time learning about the variety of research taking place across the discipline of nuclear engineering,” she commented.

“Further, this conference afforded me an opportunity to enhance my professional network and make new friends.”

The conference was held April 4-6 in Richmond, Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University. Representatives from American institutions and a few from around the world were in attendance.

The ANS Ohio State Student Chapter is one of 54 national and international student sections that the committee oversees. It was created more than 50 years ago in order to foster interest in nuclear science and technology on Ohio State’s campus and provides students with a network of faculty, fellow students and industry professionals in the nuclear sciences and engineering field. For many students, ANS has played a vital role in their success in the nuclear engineering undergraduate minor and graduate program.
