Kevin Walsh

Associate Teaching Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences

Director, Master of Engineering (MEng)






156 Fitzpatrick Hall of Engineering

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.
