Our Spring 2013 User Group Meeting is fast approaching, and we are looking forward to welcoming you to the event on the 19th of March 2013, and Seminar Day on 20th of March 2013, at the Lion Quays Waterside Resort, Nr. Oswestry, UK.
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.
TeraWatt : A collaborative research project funded under the EPSRC Grand Challenge
A general overview of the TeraWatt project and wider context (MASTS, EcoWatt2050), followed by a description of the model domain, boundary conditions, calibration points, and so on as presented by Arne Vögler (UHI).
MIKE FM Series HPC trial at the University of Southampton
DHI is working with the University of Southampton, with input from ABPmer, on a UK trial of MIKE 21 FM HPC using IRIDIS (the University's 12,000 core HPC cluster). The current results, as presented by Steve Flood (DHI), are impressive.
Shellfisheries Waters Compliance Assessments at Pegwell Bay, Kent, UK
Improvements to the waste water discharges in and around Pegwell Bay, Kent, were investigated by considering compliance with the Guideline bacteriological standard of the Shellfish Waters Directive. Jonathan Short (URS) presents the challenges and findings of the study which used MIKE by DHI software as the water quality assessment tool.
Combined Thermal Plumes from Multiple Power Stations in the Arabian Gulf
George Mitchell (TechnoEconomica) and James Tomlinson (Atkins) present a discussion of the impacts of thermal discharges on sensitive flora and fauna in the Arabian Gulf, investigated using MIKE 3 FM, and outline the need for a full understanding of the relevant water column processes contributing to the thermal budget.
River Almond Valley Water Quality Modelling Strategic Study
Atkins was commissioned to produce a dynamic water quality model of the River Almond using MIKE 11 ECO Lab. Vera Jones presents the project details which considered the impacts of Scottish Water’s local assets and identified strategies for compliance with the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive (UWWTD).
Sediment Modelling to Support the Design of New River Structures Using MIKE 21 FM
The complexities of mesh optimisation and sediment transport in a river are brought together in the presentation of Mark Cramman from MWH. Quadrangular elements have been used to define flow control structures in the complex river flow field and the performance of new structure designs have been assessed by considering the impact on sediment transport processes.
Sharing Experiences of Flood Modelling Using MIKE 21
Although unfortunately unable to attend in person this year, Lei Yang of Arup prepared two case studies of flood modelling using MIKE 21 FMHD detailing the typical issues raised and addressed by Flood Risk Assessments. Case 1 includes comments on the use of a one-dimensional weir structure in a coastal flooding scenario. Case 2 includes the use of buried culverts in an inland site with three brooks and a recorded history of flooding.
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 now complete, and a draft agenda is presented below. On the second day, 20th March 2013, we will host a number of seminar style training and open discussion sessions. These sessions will focus on new and lesser know features of MIKE FLOOD, MIKE 21 and FEFLOW: -
This is your User Group Meeting, and there is still a little time for you to influence content!
