The spreading of oil in the marine environment depends primarily on metocean conditions. MIKE 21/3 Oil Spill is fully integrated with MIKE ‘s state-of-the-art 2D and 3D flexible mesh hydrodynamic models which include wind, wave and current data bringing you greater accuracy. Calculate surface layer drift and the evaporation process to better understand the vertical dispersion of oil or even simulate oil drifting in ice-infested waters.

In addition to high-quality hydrodynamic modelling, take advantage of MIKE 21/3 Oil Spill’s inclusion of all relevant processes for simulating oil spills at sea. Model processes with oil on the sea surface (i.e. spreading and evaporation), oil in the water column (i.e. dissolution and biodegradation), gas (i.e. seabed blowout and decomposition of hydrates) as well as mitigation measures.
With MIKE 21/3 Oil Spill, you can model the detailed effects of using dynamic booms and skimmers, dispersants and burning of the spilled oil. Assess the realistic possibilities for clean-up during a spill and optimise emergency procedures as part of your contingency planning efforts.

Processes acting on spilled oil included in MIKE 21/3 Oil Spill
Traditionally, oil spill models only consider oil encountered on the water surface and moved by the combination of surface currents and winds. However, a part of the oil is dispersed to smaller droplets that in practice move like dissolved matter, depending on the current conditions at a certain depth. While ignored in traditional oil spill modelling, you can model dissolved oil in MIKE 21/3 Oil Spill by employing the MIKE 21/3 Transport module.

No in-house modellers?
DHI’s oil spill modelling experts can create a custom model and collaborate on potential solutions derived from your model results.
Get more done in less time with the modernised MIKE Zero user interface
Save time and improve your modelling workflows using MIKE Zero’s upgraded editors and viewers. Take advantage of new keyboard shortcuts and themes, improved tabbing, tear off and cascade functionality plus easier access to User Guides and Scientific Documentation.
Access new tools, Cloud applications and an enhanced graphical overview from the redesigned MIKE Zero start page
MIKE Zero, DHI’s fully Windows integrated graphical user interface, is now better than ever and comes standard with all MIKE 21/3 software. Enjoy easy access to new MIKE Cloud applications and Cloud-enhanced functionality, plus an extended set of MIKE tools within theme-based (rather than product-based) interactive workflows. Ensure important model components such as sources and structures stay at the forefront with a new interactive, customisable floating mapping window. Lastly, the updated tabbing functionality will help you work in a more organised and efficient manner.
Create 2D or 3D maps for effective visualisation
With MIKE 21/3 OS, you can create 2D or 3D maps containing the instantaneous value (as mass area concentration of volume concentration) or the statistical value (min, mean, max, time average or cell average) of all oil parameters. This includes:
Please note: 3D map creation is available when running the Oil Spill Module in a 3D domain
Characterise different types of oil
The different types of oil are characterised through several key parameters including e.g. density, viscosity, pour point and maximum water content. Additionally, the oil is divided into four fractions: heavy fraction, volatile fraction, wax and asphaltene which are also described through key parameters and weathering constants.
Conduct oil spill backtracking investigations
With the help of the MIKE Oil Spill toolbox, it is possible to reverse 2D and 3D flow fields to investigate sources of pollution and/or debris.
Visualise and analyse individual oil spill tracks
Create impressive 2D or 3D visualisations of oil spill tracks to better communicate results or plot them directly into Google Earth for integrated track and timeseries visualisation.
