1. Company

Executive summary

ASCOMP is a leading supplier of fluid-flow modelling solutions and simulation tools with emphasis on multiphase systems. The company’s flagship simulation platform TransAT Suite encompasses an exhaustive list of sub-products tailored for specific industry branches: Oil & gas, nuclear engineering, chemical and process engineering, energy systems, water technology and hydraulics, wind and environmental engineering and micro-technologies.

ASCOMP’s business is driven by its high-end modelling technology platform TransAT, backed by a strong team of developers, researchers and expert consultants in applied fluid flow systems. Besides acting as the main provider of TransAT for academic and industrial use, ASCOMP is heavily involved in consultancy and research activities.


ASCOMP GmbH (Ltd.) was created in December 2003 as a spin-off of ETH Zurich, with the objective to stand at the forefront of Computational Multi-Fluid Dynamics (CMFD). The creation of ASCOMP coincided with the launch of a series of national and international research programs addressing energy and environmental issues, in which ASCOMP was a partner. The development of TransAT – the company’s proprietary CMFD code – has essentially benefited from these early research projects, and further from various follow-up EU projects. In the period 2011-2014, ASCOMP was granted a four-year development funding from the US Department of Energy.


ASCOMP envisions being a leader in developing advanced multi-fluid simulation technologies via TransAT Suite, enabling companies to harness the power of simulation to develop efficient and optimized designs at lower cost. ASCOMP will endeavor to be at the forefront in physical modeling and simulation technology in service of TransAT, by continuously interfacing with research and academic communities worldwide.

With the increasing demands from the industry for services projects, ASCOMP become substantially involved in consultancy. The success came by taking the advantage of the current assets of the company (experts, and software suite), and by the creation of independent Lead Services Divisions in charge of:

  • Expanding the services to lead industry verticals, e.g. Nuclear Energy and Oil & Gas,
  • Addressing prioritized technical areas and broadening to the other areas gradually,
  • Enlarging the suite of simulation products to cover areas requiring tools other than CFD
  • Positioning the company as a Top Consulting Company in Engineering
  • Sustaining the organic growth of the company
