Hector Jaramillo S.
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
