Background

Mr. Lesieutre has directed research projects in applied aerodynamics, aerodynamic shape optimization, multidisciplinary shape optimization, fluid dynamics, and unsteady aerodynamics. He has been Principal Investigator on studies for the United States Air Force, Navy, and NASA.

Mr. Lesieutre has developed aerodynamic prediction methods for vehicles at high angles of attack including rotational rate effects and unsteady aerodynamic prediction methods including the unsteady simulation of missiles flying low over the sea. He has been a prime developer of the NEAR MISL3 engineering-level missile aerodynamic prediction code. He also developed the subsonic panel method-based aerodynamic prediction code MISDL (SUBDL).  Mr. Lesieutre has successfully demonstrated the use of numerical optimization methods for the multidisciplinary design of control fins with geometric and structural constraints, OPTMIS. These designs have included aerodynamic and aeroelastic shape optimization. He has also directed wind tunnel tests and utilized Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the support of research projects and commercial customers.

Mr. Lesieutre has participated in a variety of projects, including investigations of submersible hydrodynamics, missile aerodynamics, aircraft aerodynamics, store separation, and launch vehicle aerodynamics. Mr. Lesieutre has written or made major contributions to over 100 publications, papers, reports, or proceedings.
