During the User Group Meeting, we hope that you will help us to celebrate our 50th Anniversary! On the 25th of February, half a century ago, DHI was established as The Hydraulic Engineering Institute – an offshoot of the Technical University of Denmark. Initially, the conceptual basis was to combine calculations of underwater currents with large model tests, so that the impact of waves and currents in harbours and on coasts could be explored. At a time when physical models were perceived to be the only option, DHI was one of the inventors of computational hydraulics. The roots of DHI's commercial software can be traced back to 1970 - starting with System 11 and System 21 (later MIKE 11 and MIKE 21) for mainframe computers. MIKE by DHI software is still being developed and reinvented today, and is an important tool in making our 50- years of knowledge globally accessible. THE ACADEMY BY DHI THE ACADEMY offers a palette of courses and capacity building packages designed to fit your needs and challenges. Our training courses are offered as standard and/or as tailored training. MIKE by DHI courses focus on practical skills, hands-on exercises and on teaching you how to get the most out of your software. Thematic courses allow you to apply concepts, applications and decision support principles to the entire business process within current areas such as aquaculture & agriculture, energy, climate change, flooding, coast & marine, surface & groundwater, urban water, industry, environment & ecosystems, product safety & environmental risk, etc. MIKE CUSTOMISED by DHI courses enable you to understand the power of the MIKE CUSTOMISED tools for building decision support systems. Our trainers are experienced professionals, many of whom are recognised international experts in their fields. The consistent use of highly skilled trainers guarantees the quality of THE ACADEMY courses.
  3. 3. SELECTED ABSTRACTS Using MIKE 21 for the Estimation of Japan Typhoon Risk Juergen Grieser (RMS) Japan is very well defended against storm surges. Sea defences are up to 18m high. Risk Management Solutions (RMS) esti- mates the risk of storm surges for Japan in a hybrid approach. MIKE21FM and MIKE21SW are driven with a stochastic set of typhoon tracks. Based on the EurOtop Manual open-ocean wave characteristics are converted into wave characteristics directly at the defences. Defence overtopping rates and/or breaching is described by parameterizations. Various inundation scenarios are estimated using graphical processing units (GPUs) which run considerably faster than CPUs. Water Level and Tidal Current Calibrations of the Ramsey Bay Model Yiping Chen (Hyder Consulting) The presentation will cover the construction of the MIKE21 FMHD Irish Sea model, which provides coastal boundary conditions to drive the Ramsey Bay, Isle of Man, local model. In particular, the presentation will focus on water level calibrations using the available tide gauge data and tidal current calibrations using continuous ADCP measured data at 2 locations for 30 days. The calibrated model was then used for sea outfall dispersion modelling study to assess the potential impact of the new Ramsey coastal outfall and CSOs and to predict the compliance to the new EU Bathing Water Quality Objectives. Real Time Flood Forecasting in the Environment Agency Clifford Williams (Modelling and Forecasting, Environment Agency) In the context of the recent winter floods and storm surges, the presentation will focus upon flood forecasting systems used by the Environment Agency, how the Environment Agency interfaces with the Met Office, the hydraulic models used by the Environ- ment Agency (incl. MIKE 11) and how the service is delivered (e.g. to Flood Resilience Teams). Supporting Red Sea Hydrographic Survey Services: Water Level Modelling Ambre Trehin & Zhong Peng, (Fugro Geos) Fugro GEOS Ltd was commissioned to produce an operational water level model of the Red Sea using MIKE21 HD FM in order to support a bathymetry survey that will be undertaken along the Saudi Arabian coasts over 2014/2015. The hydrodynamic com- plexity of the Red Sea (presence of an amphidrome, large surge variations), as well as the client specifications regarding the allowed error, make this project very challenging. Developing Useful Estuarine Sediment Transport Models: Improving Model Outputs by Improving Model Inputs Kevin Black (Partrac) The utility of any model is a direct function of the quality of the inputs provided to the model. Almost everything related to confi- dence in the model thus depends on the quality and range of data used to calibrate and validate the model. This presentation seeks to summarise the mainstream, and less well known, marine tools and instruments that can provide nearly all of the re- quired inputs for modern sediment transport models. It will provide a framework for collection of data and outline some of the practicalities of collecting this data. Ngqura Harbour Wave Modelling Shirin Costa (Mott MacDonald) MIKE 21 BW modelling was undertaken to compare and contrast the potential changes to the wave climate within the port of Ngqura, South Africa. The modelling formed the basis of a comparative study, primarily considering the effect of different port layouts.
