The event is now in its 15th year, and we are very pleased to announce that the event is once again free of charge to all existing and potential users of MIKE by DHI software, as well as those with a general interest in water modelling, engineering and management.

If you are new to MIKE by DHI software, this annual event attracts participants from across industry and academia. The format of the meeting allows exchange of experiences through user presentations plus formal and informal interaction with both UK and Head Office DHI staff.

On the first day, 19th March 2013, there will be a mixture of presentations of new and forthcoming software features and technologies, as well as practical case studies. The programme is nearly complete, and we will publish a draft agenda very soon, but if you would like to present a paper please contact us without delay.

On the second day, 20th March 2013, we will host a number of seminar style training and open discussion sessions.

Online booking is now available via http://www.mikebydhi.com/GlobalEvents/UKUGM2013.aspx, so don’t miss out, make your booking now!


Participation in the event is free of charge and includes lunch and refreshments on both days. Overnight accommodation is available at the Lion Quays Resort for a special B&B rate of £88.50 per person per night, including breakfast and dinner on Tuesday evening.

Modelling urban flooding within the CORFU project

Collaborative Research on Flood Resilience in Urban Areas (CORFU) is an interdisciplinary international project. It looks at advanced and novel strategies to improve flood management in cities. As part of the project, we develop new state-of-the-art real-time flood forecast software. We also test and outline methodologies for urban flood modelling. These include: -
  • Real-time systems classification
  • Probabilistic forecast
  • Multi-layered models
  • Web-based flood forecast
Several cities in Asia and Europe have been selected as case studies for the project.

Initial results are now available or soon to be available in a number of publications. Some of them are: -
  • Real-time urban flood forecasting and modelling – a state-of-the-art, 2013, Henonin et al., Journal of Hydroinformatics
  • A Methodology for Probabilistic Real-Time Forecasting – An urban case study, 2013, RenĂ©e et al., Journal of Hydroinformatics
  • A framework for flood impact assessment in urban areas, 2013, Hammond et al., IAHS Red Proceedings
  • Integration of research advances in modelling and monitoring in support of WFD river basin management planning in the context of climate change, 2012, Quevauviller et al., Science of the Total Environment
  • New Policies to deal with climate change and other drivers impacting on resilience to flooding in urban areas: the CORFU approach, 2011, Djordjevic et al., Environmental Science and Policies

International Conference on Flood Resilience: Experiences in Asia and Europe

5th - 7th September 2013
Exeter, United Kingdom

An International Conference on Flood Resilience will be held at the University of Exeter on 5-7 September 2013. It will mainly focus on the experiences of the project in Asia and Europe. The aim of this event is to gather professionals to present and discuss the latest research and practices in flood management and resilience.

Please note: the deadline for expressions of interest is mid-January 2013.

MIKE by DHI Frequently Asked Questions

Our online Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page has been updated with information relevant to Release 2012. The FAQ page can be accessed at faq.dhigroup.com, and links to new posts are presented below: -

Please do not hesitate to e-mail us at mikebydhi.uk@dhigroup.com if you have questions and/or answers yourself.

Topography Adjustment Tool Update

The Topography Adjustment Tool (see here) has recently been updated. The new version can be downloaded from the website here.


NB: The Topography Adjustment Tool is provided ‘as is’ and is not part of the commercially distributed MIKE by DHI software products. As such, it is not a supported software product and technical support is not available. Additionally, the Topography Adjustment Tool was developed to work with the 2012 Release format of .DFS2 files but it is expected it will work with some earlier versions of dfs2 files and will continue to work for future releases as long as major changes are not made to the structure and content of .DFS2 files.
