The latest MIKE by DHI NetWork newsletter has been published, and selected articles are presented below: -

Product News
  • High Performance Computing: In the continuous efforts to enhance the value of the MIKE by DHI software, allowing our users to become more efficient, a High Performance Computing Center will assist in boosting the performance. DHI and the new High Performance Computing Center, IT4Innovations, have signed a collaboration agreement. The agreement covers the joint development of new features for the MIKE product family - aiming at making the power of the latest HPC technology available to MIKE software users. Read more here.
  • MIKE FLOOD de facto standard in Italy: Implementation of the EU Floods Directive call for enhanced use of deterministic models for risk assessment and management of floods. In Italy MIKE FLOOD is already a standard in many Italian regions, and has officially been adopted by many River Basin Authorities. Some of these authorities have organised training courses in MIKE FLOOD with participants from other sister organisations. MIKE FLOOD is now the most frequently used 2D numerical model in Italy.

Application Examples
  • Tsunami Hazard Assessment and Emergency Response Planning (MIKE 21): Port of Long Beach, CA and Port of Los Angeles, CA use Advanced Wave Modelling for Tsunami Hazard Assessment and Emergency Response Planning. Interest in assessment of the potential for tsunamis along the southern California coast and the associated impacts to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach was renewed in light of the devastation caused by the recent Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami of December 26, 2004. Historically, concern for tsunamis along the California coast has been limited to distant sources such as Alaska, Chile, or others. However, a few recent studies have been suggesting potential tsunami sources within the southern California Bight which could have a greater impact to the Ports due to the short travel distance and higher amplitudes than expected from the remote sources. Moffatt & Nichol conducted an investigation of the potential tsunami hazard for the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. A detailed tsunami propagation and inundation numerical model was prepared using DHI's MIKE 21 Boussinesq Wave Model to evaluate several potential sources of a tsunami, including potential subaquatic landslides, a thrust fault, and several strike slip faults capable of producing seafloor uplift.

  • Addressing Stormwater Drainage Problem (MIKE URBAN): City of Newport Is Addressing Stormwater Drainage Problems using 2D Urban Flood Modelling The City of Newport News has been working in cooperation with the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) to develop and calibrate a hydraulic model of the City's wastewater collection system using DHI's MIKE URBAN software. The City's model is being used in conjunction with a regional hydraulic model being prepared by HRSD to evaluate and optimize a wet weather control plan. Building on the success of this program, the City has decided to leverage their investment in MIKE URBAN by also using it for planning and design of the stormwater drainage and collection system.

Other News
  • Put your mind at ease, DHI makes sure you have a clean and relaxing swim! Three of our Danish experts, Anders Erichsen, Hanne Kaas and Claus Jørgensen, highlight dynamic modelling of bathing water quality for early contamination warning in the December newsletter of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Health Promoting, University of Bonn. Read their article here.
  • Getting the most out of hydropower potential in the Alps! DHI has joined the Enermet consortium and will provide accurate forecasts of the hydropower potential in selected countries of the Alps, thereby adding key information to the existing weather and energy forecasts. The system is based on a methodology that has previously been developed by DHI for the Scandinavian countries. Read more here.
