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.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

China on course to lead in nuclear by 2030, says IEA
China will have the world's largest nuclear power fleet within a decade, an International Energy Agency official noted during a session at the High-Level Workshop on Nuclear Power in Clean Energy Transitions, World Nuclear News reported on March 3.
The workshop was held jointly by the IEA and the International Atomic Energy Agency.
The IEA official, Brent Wanner, head of Power Sector Modelling & Analysis for the agency's World Energy Outlook publication, said that as nuclear fleets in the United States, Canada, and Japan reach their original design lifetimes, decisions will have to be made about what will happen after that. Absent license renewals, the contribution of nuclear power could decline substantially in those countries while China’s reactor building program will boost it into the first position.

The Korean HCSB (Helium Cooled Solid Breeder) TBM (Test Blanket Module), whose breeding zone is composed of lithium ceramic, beryllium and graphite in pebble form, was designed based on LOCAL assumption. In this research, we establish a simple preliminary GLOBAL neutronics model for the Korean HCSB TBM and perform neutronics analyses including depletion (transmutation) calculation during 500EFPDs (Effective Full Power Days) using the modified MONTEBURNS code. The neutronics characteristics for D-D plasma phase are investigated in the preliminary GLOBAL neutronics model, and the results are compared with those of D-T plasma phase. Moreover, we also establish the A-lite based GLOBAL neutronics model for more reliable neutronics calculation, and the results are compared with each other.
