Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr Aurik Andreu is a senior manufacturing engineer at the Advanced Forming Research Centre Forging team within the Forging and Incremental Technologies Team. Aurik is also leading the Heating Technology theme within the centre which is a very relevant area for most of the Tiers 1 and Tiers 2 members of the AFRC.

Aurik’s background consists of a mixture of industrial and commercial research with particular areas of expertise around material science (ceramics, carbon and metals), Gas to liquid (GTL), heating technologies / processes and modelling.

Aurik has led research activities at the AFRC on programmes such as the commissioning of an industrial gas furnace and Emissivity Calibration furnace for validating thermal process FEA modelling, testing new sensors and instruments, characterising furnace behaviour under different loading conditions and informing part-specific heating for the centre’s industrial partners.
