Kevin Walsh

Associate Teaching Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences; Director, Master of Engineering (MEng)

Kevin Walsh’s primary areas of research interest are sustainable and resilient infrastructure, pultruded fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) structural framing, inventory and seismic assessment of masonry and concrete buildings, large-scale experimental testing including the testing of in situ structures, unbonded post-tensioning strand/anchorage systems, modern masonry construction materials, and the professional practice of structural engineering.

He is the Principal Investigator (PI or Co-PI) in experimentally testing FRP material under elevated temperatures, the performance of UHPC link slabs in interstate highway bridges, and proprietary pultruded FRP framing members and connections, and in carrying out a seismic risk assessment of over 70 medieval Catholic churches in Italy in collaboration with multiple Italian universities. He has also been a PI/co-PI in projects involving testing historic masonry material in the American Midwest, New Zealand, and Myanmar, timber diaphragm retrofits in Italy, and proprietary mortarless masonry cladding in New Mexico.

He is a registered Professional Engineer (PE) or Structural Engineer (SE) in over a dozen states and has more than a decade of work experience in the structural engineering industry. He is a principal engineer at Frost Engineering & Consulting, Mishawaka, Indiana.
