Welcome to the YankeeNet!

This site was created for the use of all past and present members of the Yankee Atomic family. Within this site you will find schedule and location information for monthly get togethers, news about members of the Yankee community, and photos. In addition, the YankeeNet Forum can be used to post information or questions of general interest, announce a job opportunity you are aware of, or alert the Yankee community that you are looking for a new gig.

As this is a dynamic site, please check back often for changes and updates. There are a number of additional features planned. In the meantime, please feel free to sign the YankeeNet Guestbook.

Finally, a handful of YAEC alumni were actively involved in supporting the recovery efforts at Fukushima-Daiichi. A number of ideas, concepts, and preliminary engineering designs were provided for cooling, re-powering, and fission product containment, collection, and filtering. One visible example, the use of concrete pumper trucks to continuously deliver targeted cooling water, is a direct result of YAEC alumni involvement early in the event.

Reading Assignment:

Very early in 2006, a prominent YAEC alumnus wrote a column published in the IEEE Power and Energy magazine entitled "The Next Nuclear Accident - A Perspective on Power Sufficiency". It's a timely article to dust off post-Fukushima-Daiichi. Reproduced here with permission, you can read the article at the following link:

Monthly Reunions:

Members of the Yankee community are encouraged to attend our monthly get-togethers. These will be regularly held on the third Thursday of every month with locations to be determined. Plan on arriving anytime from 5:30 pm on. Come when you can. Stay as long as you want. We'd love to see you there.

Please forward your suggestions for future sites to webmaster@YankeeNet.net
