Kevin C. Henry, P.E.

—Curriculum Vitae

Professional Profile

Mr. Henry is a Professional Engineer and consultant with over 20 years of experience, education, and training in the investigation and engineering analysis of vehicle collisions and other Transportation Safety incidents. He earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and an M.S. in Civil Engineering, providing background in the automotive, roadway, and driver factors related to collision events. His extensive background in research and publications as an author in the engineering literature reflect his dedication to understanding the vehicle dynamics and physics principles involved in single-vehicle crashes and multi-vehicle collisions involving all modes of transportation including commercial vehicles and heavy trucks, pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, automobiles, and transit.

Over the course of his career, Mr. Henry has completed field investigations and inspections in over 45 states and international locations, has reconstructed hundreds of collisions, and has extensive experience in vehicle download data systems, unmanned aerial vehicle mapping, forensic photography and photogrammetry, computational analysis, 3D modeling, and visual demonstratives using proven scientific methodologies and advanced data technology. Mr. Henry has testified as an expert in his field.
