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.

This book describes the current state of knowledge about pressure vessel material selection, fabrication (including welding), the changes in properties in service, and response to high-temperature annealing. In contrast to the bad reports of inadequate attention to reactor safety in the former Soviet Union, this book shows that the question of pressure vessel performance has received proper attention, and a strong scientific base underlies the assessment of vessel life. This book should be read by reactor designers and operators and their scientific colleagues throughout the world.
