MIKE URBAN IS NOW FREE FOR UK WATER COMPANIES!

We are pleased to announce that, for UK-based Water Companies, MIKE URBAN is now available with no initial investment cost, when signing up to a minimum three year Support and Maintenance (SMA) agreement.

The deal includes:
  • MIKE URBAN Model Manager (including EPANET and SWMM5)
  • CS-Pipeflow 1D Pipe flow modelling (MOUSE and MIKE 1D Engine)
  • CS-RR   Rainfall-runoff models
  • CS-Control* Advanced real-time control capabilities
  • CS-CA*  Catchment analysis tools
  • CS-PT*  Advection-dispersion and sediment transport modelling
  • CS-BP*  Chemical and biological processes in sanitary and combined systems
  • MIKE FLOOD 2D Overland* for combined 1D Pipe-flow and 2D Overland flow simulations
  • MIKE 21 AD* 2D (and 1D-2D) advection-dispersion modelling
* Optional modules

This deal would allow you to complement your existing 1D-2D toolset with the power and flexibility of MIKE URBAN.

The MIKE by DHI (Urban) suite of fully integrated software tools offers many advantages over 1D pipe models and standard integrated catchment models:
  • True long term / continuous simulations rather than event based hydrology - slow response runoff modelling using rainfall dependent infiltration (RDI) to accurately model seasonal variations in infiltration and pipe flow.
  • Advanced water quality simulations - fully integrated 1D-2D advection-dispersion modelling in order to consider the transport of polluted flood waters.
  • Two-way interaction between pipes in the ground and the surrounding aquifer (groundwater) - modelling of infiltration to and leakage from pipes.
  • Analysis of sulphide gas formation - assessment of odour and corrosion of infrastructure.
  • Globally applicable rainfall-runoff models (including fully distributed hydrology).
  • Local area weather radar integration (up to 100m spatial resolution).
  • Online, web-based forecasting and warning tools with computer aided real-time control of pumps and storage features.
  • Speed up simulations using a unique combined CPU-GPU approach.
  • Seamless integration of powerful river, overland flow and marine models.
  • COMING SOON: Catchment and site scale water quality treatment processes in sustainable drainage features (SuDS)
NEW TRAINING COURSES IN URBAN WATER

The following Thematic, Urban Drainage / Flooding training courses are planned for 2015:
  • Screening of Urban Flood Risk - Cost-effective mapping of urban flood risk
  • Modelling of Storm Water for Green Cities
  • FREE TRAINING: Flood Waters Are Not Blue - Upgrade your flood models to consider the impacts of sediments and the transport of polluted flood waters (1-day 'Beyond Hydrodynamics' seminar)
New to MIKE URBAN? UK-based support, and introductory training, is available with access to international expertise as required.

UK Annual Symposium 2015

We are in the early stages of planning the UK Annual Symposium 2015.

We are thinking about a new venue - but the date is likely to be April 2015.

We love creating the opportunity for you to meet both the UK Team and the wider DHI Team and for you all to meet each other and share what you have been using the MIKE by DHI software for.

The conference usually includes a wide range of presentations and workshop to inspire those who are new to our software as well as those who have been using it for many years.

If you have been working on a project that would like to tell everyone about - Feel free to drop us a line at mikebydhi.uk@dhigroup.com and reserve your presentation slot.

SI Ocean Project: Tidal & Wave Energy



Share your data with internal and external clients with the help of MIKE CUSTOMISED! The above example demonstrates on-line access to DHI wave and tidal flow model simulations for energy resource scoping studies - view the interactive map at http://si-ocean.dhigroup.com/map

In 2011, 3.4 MW of wave and tidal energy devices in advanced stages of technology development had been tested across Europe. The International Energy Agency Ocean Energy Systems (OES-IA) vision document, "An International Vision for Ocean Energy”, has forecasted a global wave and tidal deployment potential of 337GW by 2050. Reaching these deployment targets would see long-term benefits including a reduction in carbon emissions, greater security of supply, and economic benefits through job creation and inward investment. If Europe is to maintain a global lead in ocean energy and gain the benefits associated with meeting these targets, an aggressive deployment trajectory will be required. Read more >>>

Understanding the Coastal Ocean: A foundation course in the modelling of waves and tides
Date: 19th to 21st January 2015
Venue: Queen’s University, Belfast, UK
Cost: GBP 795 excl. VAT (discounted rate of GBP 675 excl. VAT for registered students)
Registration: http://www.theacademybydhi.com/course-sessions/understanding-the-coastal-ocean-26600004-03

THE ACADEMY by DHI and Queen’s University, Belfast have designed a three day hands-on foundation course to give delegates a basic introduction to the science behind wave and tidal models.  The course is targeted at either early career professionals or those changing disciplines who wish to understand both the underlying processes and their practical application in engineering consultancy.  The course outline is shown below:

Day 1 Morning: Theoretical Background & Engineering Considerations of Tides
  • how are tides generated (general ocean circulation, Coriolis, tide-producing forces)?
  • why do tides vary around the world (tidal constituents, tidal analysis, shallow water harmonics)?
  • how does the ocean interact with its boundaries (bed friction, edge friction, wetting/drying, wind forcing, thermal/saline exchange)?
  • how to define model domain (tidal excursion, flowfield considerations, importance of vertical datum)
  • where to get data from (measurements, data sources, data types)
  • how to improve confidence in your model (calibration and validation)
Day 1 Afternoon: Numerical Modelling with MIKE 21 FMHD
  • an introduction to the model interface (physical parameters, what is eddy viscosity, tunable parameters)
  • creating a new fine-scale model (mesh, boundaries)
Day 2 Morning: Numerical Modelling with MIKE 21 FMHD (Continued)
  • tuning your fine-scale model (calibration and validation)
Day 2 Afternoon: Theoretical Background & Engineering Considerations of Waves
  • how are waves created and modified (basic wave theory, interaction with boundaries, processes in deep and shallow water)
  • introduction to wave spectra (wave energy distribution, parameterisation of wave climate)
  • wave measurement methods (interpreting observations)
  • spectral wave modelling (fully represented and parameterised processes, assumptions, model domain)
Day 3: Numerical Modelling with MIKE 21 SW
  • an introduction to the model interface (solution schemes, consideration of formulation options)
  • convergence information (understanding its use)
  • creating a new fine-scale model (boundaries)
  • understanding and improving your wave model results (how to spot issues, calibration and validation)
  • introduction to the coupled model
Registration for the course can be made online here http://www.theacademybydhi.com/course-sessions/understanding-the-coastal-ocean-26600004-03 or by contacting the UK Team at mikebydhi.uk@dhigroup.com

We have designed the course to have a wide field of application and therefore anticipate a high level of interest so don’t miss out, book your place today!
