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.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

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.

Tungsten was joined to ferritic-martensitic steel (FMS) for application in a plasma facing component. Zirconium foil was investigated as an interlayer material for the joining of W to FMS. Repeated hot isostatic pressing (HIP) was conducted for the fabrication of W/FMS joints. The first HIP was performed at 950°C under 100 MPa for 1.5 h (diffusion joining stage), and the second HIP was executed at 750°C under 70 MPa for 2 h (tempering stage). The Zr interlayer formed a sound interface between W and FMS with no observable pores and cracks. The joining strength of W/FMS measured by a shear test was about 54 MPa. Elemental diffusion was observed along the hetero-interfaces of W/Zr and Zr/FMS. At the W/Zr interface, a thin layer of W–Zr inter-phase was observed. At the Zr/FMS interface, no intermetallic compound was formed, however, fine Zr grains featuring body-centered tetragonal lattice structures were formed near the interface.
