Tomislav Filetin

Born 1949 in Zagreb. Graduated in 1973, master of science degree in 1979 and the Ph.D. degree in 1986 all at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture. He is Professor emeritus at the Department of Materials at the same Faculty. Scientific and professional interests are in the following fields: selection and optimal use of advanced materials and processes, simulation and modelling of material properties and the heat treatment processes, cellular materials-aluminium foams. He is author, co-author or editor of 14 books, of over 140 scientific and professional articles. He is collaborative member of the Croatian Academy of Science and Arts and full member of Croatian Academy of Engineering.
