Vlastimil Kunc

Team Lead, Polymer Materials Development

Dr. Vlastimil Kunc is the Group Leader for Polymer Materials Development at the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility of Oak Ridge National Laboratory and serves as an adjunct professor at Purdue University. His research centers around microstructure and properties of discontinuous fiber composites produced with rapid flow molded processes such as, injection molding as well as highly controlled processes in extrusion deposition. In addition to development of fiber reinforced materials for extrusion deposition, his work experience includes the development of numerical methods for prediction of material response, structural modeling, experimental measurement of material and structural response under various loads and environmental conditions.
