David DeCroix

David DeCroix is the team leader for the D-5 computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and aerosol transport team. He has a BSME and MSME from Bradley University and a Ph.D. in atmospheric science from North Carolina State University. Before coming to LANL, he worked at the North American Aircraft Division of Rockwell International in the advanced aerodynamics group. There, he was involved in internal and external aerodynamic wind tunnel testing and using CFD in the design process. He took an educational leave of absence from Rockwell to pursue his Ph.D. at NCSU and came to the Laboratory in 1998 as a graduate research assistant. He then became a postdoctoral research associate and a staff member in D Division. Since coming to the Laboratory, he has been actively involved in the development and application of CFD methods, including large-eddy simulation of turbulence and more traditional Reynolds-averaged methods.
