For 25 years, MIKE Powered by DHI’s software products have been used in water environments all over the world. Thousands of professionals choose MIKE software to solve tough and complex challenges in areas such as oceans and coastlines, rivers and reservoirs, ecology, groundwater, water distribution, wastewater and many more.
Our data management, decision support and operational forecasting software suite traverses all our areas of applications, complementing existing MIKE technologies in the work we do for you.
MIKE Powered by DHI is a range of software products that enable you to accurately analyse, model and simulate any type of challenge in water environments.
Whether you need access for a single user, small businesses, large corporations or universities, we have the pricing option that fits your budget and modelling needs.
We offer Subscription Packages which provide the freedom to enjoy multiple applications with greatly enhanced scalability, Perpetual Licenses if you prefer to build your own software portfolio, Academic Licenses for academic staff and students, as well as access through Azure Marketplace (bring your own license) and MIKE Software as a Service (no separate license necessary). With a wide variety of user access options available, there is sure to be one that is right for your projects.
In November 2021, to coincide with Release 2022, our MIKE software prices will increase (for the first time in 3 years) by 3%. This will affect new purchases of Perpetual Licenses, Subscription Packages and Academic Licenses, and also the price of Essential SMA. SMA on Professional and University licenses is not affected by the price increase. In future, with each new major Release (normally scheduled in November), DHI will index all prices by global inflation, including SMA on Professional and University licenses.

An almost endless range of applications
MIKE 21/3 can be applied to diverse areas and is ideal for coastal engineering studies, such as harbours or similar structures, as well as environmental applications including dispersion, oil spill, eutrophication and modelling of living organisms.
Model complex hydrodynamics and scour with accurate turbulence modelling
MIKE 3 Flow Model FM users now have access to a k-Omega turbulence model with wall functions to model vortices and vortex shedding around vertical structures such as slender piles. When coupled with a MIKE 21/3 Mud Transport or a MIKE 21/3 Sand Transport model, you can more accurately predict scour around structures. Watch video
Model in the cloud with Azure Marketplace
You can now access MIKE 21/3 on Azure Marketplace, where you can start modelling in the cloud with no hardware limitation in four simple steps. Learn more
Couple MIKE 21/3 modules for advanced studies
Need to analyse problems where flow and transport phenomena are important and where the flexibility inherited in the unstructured meshes can be utilised? Look no further than MIKE 21/3 Coupled Model FM. With this truly dynamic modelling system, you’ll have the power to investigate the morphological evolution of nearshore bathymetry impacted by factors such as dredging works and engineering structures, including breakwaters, groins, shoreface nourishment and harbours. Explore all capabilities
Use MIKE 21/3 Coupled Model FM to:
Enhance your modelling with first class tools
Set up simulations, perform pre- and post-processing analysis, and present and visualise results with MIKE Zero, our fully Windows integrated graphical user interface embedded in MIKE 21/3. With MIKE Zero, you can better control and organise information for nearly all kinds of engineering studies including model simulations. Streamline your work with access to a wide range of informative and helpful features. Learn more
Run fast simulations for quicker results
MIKE 21/3 takes advantage of the efficient parallelisation techniques for the use of multiple cores and GPUs. Special techniques have also been developed to enhance calculation speed within the morphological modelling. Learn more
Clearly communicate your results with powerful visualisation tools
Regardless of how efficient your modelling is, clear communication of results is crucial to its value and recognition. With MIKE 21/3, you can:
Generate unstructured meshes and boundary conditions quickly and easily
Take advantage of the built-in Mesh Generator Tool to generate and handle unstructured meshes more efficiently. Automatically create high quality boundary conditions in minutes using Boundary Conditions Generator – a free premium feature for customers with a Service and Maintenance Agreement (SMA).
Model a variety of subgrid features to understand the effects of structures
MIKE 21/3 enables you to model the effect of structures using a subgrid technique and you can include six different types of structures in your simulations:
You also have the option to include composite structures by combining a weir and one or more culverts.
Master the software in no time
Get the most value from your software and reduce project risk with a variety of training options and technical support.
Run your models on LINUX
The computational engines of MIKE 21/3 are also available on Linux operating systems taking advantage of access to 100’s of CPU’s. Learn more
