INVESTMENT

Fee: No charge*

Time commitment: approximately two hours in total, divided as follows:

  • Self-study: five modules, combining online video lectures, demonstration videos, quizzes, hands-on exercises and reading materials. Approximately two hours in total is needed for you to get the maximum out of the course.
  • (Optional) Additional reading materials can be made available for you to master the software at a greater depth.

PRODUCT

MIKE FLOOD


Protecting local communities against flooding often requires a detailed understanding of the flow across the floodplain. This is typically relevant when embankments are breached or overtopped. Mitigating the potential loss of life and economic impacts of extreme events requires robust reliable information. 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 flooding holistically. You will learn about the basic functions of MIKE FLOOD and see how it can help you tackle the most pressing water management challenges of today.

About MIKE FLOOD

MIKE FLOOD is DHI’s inland water modelling platform that helps you model any flood problem - whether it involves rivers, floodplains, flooding in streets, drainage networks, coastal areas, dams, levee and dike breaches, or any combination of these.

The core elements in MIKE FLOOD are our well-proven models, MIKE HYDRO River for rivers, MIKE+ for collection systems and MIKE 21 for 2D surface flow. These are coupled to form a unique and trend-setting three-way coupled modelling tool.

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

IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR ME?

Are you interested in getting a kick-start in modelling the water environment and coupling a 1D river to a 2D overland model? Do you want to find out how easy it is to work on models using MIKE FLOOD? Do you need an overview of the MIKE FLOOD software and learn how to use the basic functions of MIKE HYDRO River, MIKE 21 FM and MIKE FLOOD to start a project from scratch? If yes, you will benefit from this self-paced course.

WHAT ARE MY EXPECTED OUTCOMES?

Upon completion of your course, you will be able to set up and run your very first model in MIKE FLOOD.

LEARNING METHODOLOGY

Each module includes videos and materials 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.
