Héctor E. Jaramillo S. is a full-time professor-researcher of the Autónoma de Occidente University (Cali, Colombia). He has a PhD from the Universidad del Valle with an emphasis in the mechanics of solids. The PhD dissertation was about the design and development of a finite element model of the L4-L5-S1 segment of the human spine and the experimental characterization was made in the Orthopaedic Bioengineering Research Laboratory of the Colorado State University. He has vast experience in finite element analysis using no linear, orthotropic, and hyperelastic materials. He has a masters degree in civil engineering (2004), and a BSc in Mechanical Engineering (1992). His topics of interest are the mechanics of solids, fatigue fracture mechanics, mechanical engineering design, and finite element analysis

Latest work with IntechOpen by Hector Jaramillo S.

In materials, their strength is the ability to bear an applied load before their failure. In this direction, the Strength of Materials studies the stresses and deformations that happen in materials as an outcome of loads acting on them. The book contains eleven peer-reviewed chapters organized into two sections. Section 1 is focused on the strength of metals and composites materials, in other words on traditional materials used in engineering projects. Section 2 contains chapters on sustainable materials or non-conventional materials. We sincerely hope that you enjoy this book and the contents will help in the dissemination of knowledge to researchers and students working with materials and their applications.
