The 2012 MIKE by DHI UK User Group Meeting took place on
Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st March 2012
The 14th* MIKE by DHI UK User Group Meeting was a great success!
We would like to extend our thanks to the 65 clients – both present and potential users – who participated in the event; particularly those who delivered the many varied and informative keynotes and user presentations.
The full list of presentations can be found in the Agenda below. Some users have already given permission for us to make their presentations available online. These papers are available here, and we hope to add download links for other papers soon.
On the second day, 45 users attended the various training sessions. The training materials, and accompanying documents, featured in the sessions will be made available to all participants upon request – some are available here.
User Presentations & Training Materials
"Thanks again for another enjoyable and useful UGM. It once more proved to be a helpful and enlightening few days in the (almost) top right-hand corner of Wales." Jack - ABPmer
"Many thanks for your hospitality... The 2nd day presentation on shoreline management by Karsten was highly valuable." Zaman - Royal Haskoning
"Thank you for the excellent DHI User Group meeting, it was my first conference experience since starting at Metoc and it was a very high standard and a pleasure to attend... Will DHI be making the presentations available on the internet? I told my colleagues about the presentations and they are very keen to see some of the interesting and diverse work being undertaken by Mike software users." Gareth - Intertek
"Thank you all for the very well-organised event, wonderful hospitality, and the opportunity to meet MIKE developers and users... Looking forward to the next meeting." Zeinab - University College Dublin

2012 MIKE by DHI UK User Group Meeting: Agenda
Tuesday 20th March 2012
In addition to the user presentations listed below, we will be detailing the new features and technologies available to you in the forthcoming MIKE by DHI Release 2012, as well as outlining our future plans for the software portfolio: -
- Urban Flood Flows: The suburb of Merewether in Newcastle is providing engineers with critical data that will inform emergency personnel on how to plan better for the floods which have wreaked havoc across Australia in the past few years. A model of the suburb has been created in Sydney's Water Research Lab (Grantley Smith, University of Newcastle, NSW)
For a taster of Grantley Smith's presentation, please see the video below or read this news article: http://www.nbnnews.com.au/index.php/2012/02/09/pasha-bulker-storm-changes-the-way-we-plan-for-floods/.

*time permitting!Wednesday 21st March 2012
Here there is a choice of three separate 'Tracks'. We will also endeavour to add Ad Hoc inset 'How To...' sessions which can be mixed and matched according to your requirements: -
- Water Resources: A detailed look at the new features of MIKE FLOOD Release 2012 (with example applications), followed by an introductory MIKE FLOOD seminar, and discussions on model stability
- Ground Water: An Introduction to 3D Visualisation using FEFLOW
The above 1-day course on Shoreline Management will include an overview and discussion of the following topics: -
- Shoreline Management (Marine): How to Protect and Develop your Coasts
The free 1-day Shoreline Management course is a shortened version of a comprehensive 4-day training course, if you are interested in the full course please contact us.
- Introducing coastal and estuarine processes (physics)
- Understanding sources of shoreline impact (anthropological effects)
- Accounting for future variations in environmental conditions (climate change & policy)
- Fitting the complexity of the modelling to the level of the study (regulator response)
