Dr. Jesús Chávez Sagarnaga

Jesús joined Jenike & Johanson in 2005.  He is mainly responsible for advanced structural analyses and designs of solids storage structures, such as bins, silos and bunkers, loading (internal and external) analyses for such structures as well as developing rehabilitation schemes for existing solids storage structures.  He also conducts stress and fatigue analyses for complex bulk solids structures as well as for investigation on failures of steel and concrete silos using the finite element and other methods.  He routinely conducts structural assessments of bulk solids structures, determines their suitability for continued use and designs modifications for safe operation.  Jesús received his Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Universidad Autonoma de Chihuahua, México and his Ph.D. in Engineering and Science from The University of Edinburgh in Scotland.
