Accurately model any type of river with MIKE HYDRO River
Precisely estimate the runoff in you catchment by selecting the right Rainfall-Runoff model for your domain
Boost the efficiency of your river modelling with MIKE HYDRO River’s modern, map-based and highly intuitive graphical user interface. Prepare your models and investigate results in no time. Improve the quality of communication with your stakeholders by presenting 1D results in 2D maps (based on a Digital Elevation Model).
Intuitive and comprehensive User Interface to save you valuable time
Use our latest generation 1-dimensional engine for complex and fast simulations
Conduct flow field and flood studies of river channels and adjacent floodplains. Forecast the impact of bridge, tunnel and pipeline crossings on river channel hydraulics and morphology. Prepare design criteria for river training works in terms of flow velocities, flow depths, scour depths, bank line retreat rates and shoaling. Carry out hazard/risk assessments, mitigation planning plan developments and test designs options.
Develop robust control strategies for river and reservoir management. Model highly regulated canal systems and manage canal operations. Optimise the operation of your reservoirs for better flood and drought protection and improved hydropower production. Define complex structure operations and compare different operational strategies.
Create integrated hydrological and hydraulic assessments for long-term water resources analyses and planning. Perform flood analyses and flood alleviation design studies, runoff impact assessments for land use changes and climate change scenario analyses.
Deliver water quality assessments, investigate salinity intrusion in rivers and estuaries, quantify wetland functions, understand sediment transport and make long-term assessments of river morphology changes. These capabilities allow you to define restoration plans for habitat environments in channel floodplains.
Include solute transport and water quality processes
Water quality in rivers and other surface water bodies are increasingly threatened by human activity such as pollution, changes in land use, poor water treatment, inefficient operation of regulation systems and recreational activities. Users can simulate the transport and spreading of conservative pollutants using the Advection Dispersion add-on module and include linear decay options. For more advanced water quality issues such as heat balance, bacteria growth and eutrophication, MIKE ECO Lab provides all the flexibility required to analyse environmental conditions in rivers, canals and reservoirs and investigate remediation strategies.
Model cohesive and non-cohesive sediment dynamics
The Sediment Transport add-on module enables the modelling of cohesive and non-cohesive sediment dynamics to investigate a wide range of issues including sediment transport, sediment remobilisation in polluted streams, river morphology, erosion and deposition of uniform and mixed sediments. Users can also calculate morphological changes of river bed bathymetry and bed sediment composition. Whether you perform long-term simulations of morphological changes in rivers or rapid assessment of sediment dynamics in larger river systems, MIKE HYDRO River can help. Optimise dredging maintenance for improved navigation and better manage sediment in rivers and reservoirs for restoration projects with available transport models for fine, cohesive sediments such as clay and silt, non-cohesive sediments such as sand, gravel and boulders, as well as mixed sediments.
Simulate the control of operational structures
Rivers are increasingly controlled and the optimum operation of structures can be a challenging task. With the Structure Operation module, you can simulate operational structures such as sluices, overflow and radial gates as well as pumps and turbines from user-defined operation strategies and rules.
Take advantage of an automatic calibration process to define parameters
Calibration of models can be a tedious and time consuming task. The Automatic Calibration (AUTOCAL) module allows users to find the best values for a wide range of parameters, including RR parameters, Manning numbers, head loss coefficients and water quality.
Simulate dam breaches
The combination of climate change and aging infrastructures makes dam breaks an increasingly important risk – therefore proper understanding of associated hazards is crucial. MIKE HYDRO River provides various methods for simulating dam breaches from an initial dam geometry. This includes modes for soil erosion failures or user-defined breaches.
Transform your model into a real-time decision support system
The ability to forecast floods based on observed and forecast data is vital in a world where global warming is increasing the likelihood of more extreme events. Elevate your model to a full-fledged flood forecasting system with the Data Assimilation (DA) module. This enables MIKE HYDRO River to assimilate data from a gauging station, continuously update your model state during simulation with Kalman filter and carry out uncertainty assessments.
Go beyond river modelling
For complex studies that require integrated modelling, couple MIKE HYDRO River with other cutting edge software in the MIKE Powered by DHI suite. For example, couple MIKE HYDRO River with FEFLOW to consider the interaction with groundwater or with MIKE 21 / MIKE URBAN+ (through MIKE FLOOD) to better understand how your rivers interact with surrounding flood areas and the urban environment. Connect MIKE HYDRO River with MIKE SHE to step back and consider the wider watershed and hydrological cycle in your catchment.
Expand your horizons
Extend the capabilities of MIKE HYDRO River even further by developing your own tools with MIKE SDK. Create custom scripts (or tap into DHI’s open source library) to load and execute your own logic with the MIKE 1D engine. Integrate MIKE HYDRO River in third party modelling software using OpenMI.
