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.

How is EPRI supporting plant life extensions?
Many nuclear plants have operating licenses that extend beyond their original term of 40 years to 60 years, and many are expected to operate to 80 years or even beyond. The Electric Power Research Institute helped formulate the technical basis for up to 80 years of nuclear power plant operation. Based on this experience, EPRI has developed a systematic approach to maintaining the technical basis for long-term operation.

An authoritative account by one of Russia's most distinguished metallurgists of the properties and behavior of stainless steels used or proposed for use in nuclear reactors, both fission and fusion. While all of the work reported was carried out on steels with Russian designations, a comprehensive table relates these to U.S. and European designations. The book discusses the environments in which the steels have to perform and at the same time discusses the underlying physical phenomena that control their behavior in service. In addition to steels, there is considerable treatment of titanium and its alloys, which have good resistance to water corrosion and have favorable neutron capture cross sections.
