MIKE URBAN+ 2D overland flow (MU+ 2D)


Urban flooding often occurs as a result of insufficient storm drainage capacity, river overflows, storm surge, coastal floods or a combination of these phenomena. Cities in many parts of the world are vulnerable to urban flooding, largely due to the lack of efficient drainage systems. Furthermore, the risks of flooding are amplified by the expected effects of climate change.

This free, self-paced course will teach you how to address urban flooding holistically. You will learn about the basic functions of MIKE URBAN+ and see how it can help you tackle the most pressing water management challenges of today. After you complete this course, you will be able to continue comfortably on our more advanced and comprehensive course.

The 2D dynamic flood modelling capability in MIKE URBAN+ allows you to model the exchange between 2D surface water and a 1D storm water network. This includes a seamless workflow for 1D and 2D model development and leveraging the computational power of parallel processing on a multi-core CPU or multiple GPUs.

About MIKE URBAN+

MIKE URBAN+ is DHI’s urban water modelling platform that helps you model all urban water systems, including water distribution, storm water drainage, sewer collection in separate and combined systems as well as integrated urban flooding.

IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR ME?

Are you interested in getting a kick-start in modelling the urban water environment and coupling a 1D network to a 2D overland model? Do you want to find out how easy it is to work on models, using MIKE URBAN+ 2D? Do you need an overview of the MIKE URBAN+ programme and learn how to use the basic functions of MIKE URBAN+ 2D in order to start a project from scratch? If yes, you will definitely benefit from this free, self-paced course.

WHAT ARE MY EXPECTED OUTCOMES?

Upon completion of your course you will be on your way to becoming an urban water modeller. Thus, you will be able to set up and run your very first model in MIKE URBAN+ 2D.

LEARNING METHODOLOGY

Each module includes videos, materials and handouts that you need for model examples and quizzes. It will take you around two hours to complete the course at a time that fits your needs and requirements - and from the comfort of your own office, home or any location convenient for you.

MODULE DETAILS

Module 1 - First steps

Creating a new project using an existing database and working with background layers

Module 2 - Exploring the 2D Overland module

Investigating flooded nodes of the 1D network system and start working on the 2D overland model by creating the 2D domain

Module 3 - 2D specifications

Working on 2D parameters such as 2D surface roughness, model couplings, 2D initial conditions and running the very first simulation

Module 4 - Results

Loading and viewing basic results
