Chidu Narayanan (Lead) is the head of development of TransAT. Titular of an MS from Iowa State US (Prof. Pletcher), and PhD from ETH Zurich (Prof. Yadigaroglu). Expert in CFD & CMFD, he worked formerly at Combustion Research & Flow Technology Inc., Dublin, PA, USA.
Siju Thomas : He obtained a Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Mumbai, India, and completed his MS and PhD with Prof. Tryggvason at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, USA. He develops heat transfer phase change models, and Phase Field models for microscale interfacial flows.
Mathieu Labois : He studied fluid mechanics at Cranfield University, and obtained a PhD in multiphase flow from CEA France. He develops averaged multiphase flow modeling framework for thermal hydraulics applications.
Daniel Caviezel : He studied Computer Sciences at ETH Zurich. He is the main responsible for parallel MPI/OpenMP protocols, mesh refinement, and algorithm integration and speed up. He develops Interface Tracking algorithms within TransAT.
Jarunan Panyasantisuk : She studied mechanical engineering at Ecole Centrale de Nantes. She is responsible for algorithm speed-up and code integration.
Asad Raheem : He studied mechanical engineering (Institute of Fluid Dynamics) at ETH Zurich. Specialized in multiscale modeling of multiphase flows.
Vincent Dabir : He initially studied Applied Maths at INSA Toulouse, France. He is titular of a Master (I) from Politecnico de Torino in Applied Maths and a Master (II) in mathematical modeling for engineering from INSA Toulouse. He is active in the oil& gas modeling sector: separation, recovery and subsea oil spill.
Karim Khayrat : He studied mechanical engineering (Institute of Fluid Dynamics) at ETH Zurich. His core activities relate to turbulence modeling and FSI.
Jan van Rickenbach: He studied mechanical engineering (Institute of Energy Technology) at ETH Zurich and at the Heat Transfer Laboratory of the University of Minnesota, USA. Specialized in chemical reactive flows and radiative heat transfer.
Sylvain Reboux: He is a senior research scientist at ASCOMP. Sylvain obtained his first degree from Ecole Poytechnique Paris in 2004. He holds a PhD in computational biofluidics from the University of Nottingham UK. He was posted at the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science of ETH Zurich (member of the MOSAIC Group) as a postdoctoral fellow in the period 2008-2012, before joining recently ASCOMP.
Matteo Icardi: He studied Applied Mathematics at Politecnico de Torino, and obtained his PhD under the guidance of Prof. M. Marchisio and Prof. R. Fox (Iowa State University). His development activities relate to population balance equations based on DQMOM type of closure for multiphase reactive flows.
ASCOMP was founded in 2003 as a spin-off company of ETH Zurich by members of the Computational Multi-Fluid Flow Group (CMFG), which was created in 1998 by Dr. Dr. Lakehal and Prof. Yadigaroglu within the Nuclear Engineering Laboratory. The research activities of CMFG were centred on the numerical modelling and simulation of multiphase flows and heat transfer for nuclear and conventional power plant technology and safety
