Catalin Pruncu applies mechanical principles and design methodologies to solve problems in material behaviour produced by metal forming processes,  particularly on hot stamping and hot forging.

Catalin has great experience in Microstructural characterization, Solid Mechanics, Fracture Mechanics, Tribology, Design Mechanics & Finite Element Modelling determined both numerically and experimentally.

He spend some time in industry to create high integrity products for naval and nuclear application.
