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.
The division was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

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.

Nuclear Plants and Utilities are operating on razor thin margins, and the pressure to both increase equipment reliability and reduce cost within ever shrinking operating budgets has given rise to Monitoring and Diagnostics that replace time based PMs. Collectively, there is a need to significantly improved the quality and cost-effectiveness of Monitoring and Diagnostics Centers that are tightly integrated into Work Management. This session will include presentations from utilities that are spinning up M&D centers, fine tuning existing M&D centers, integrating into Fleet M&D centers. There will also be discussion on lessons learned, and integration with Work Management, Operations and Engineering all in an attempt to increase equipment reliability at the most economical cost. Using automation to monitor critical equipment, produce automated equipment health reports, predict needed repairs and reduce the time based maintenance. Come hear about how to justify the start-up costs, establish monitoring scopes using the EPRI Cost benefit tools and COLM strategies.
