Get the full picture on flooding

Predict the impact of flood events, identify risks and propose damage mitigation measures for climate adaptation and emergency response plans.

Features to address any flooding challenge

Get all the insights you need with MIKE+’s hydrologic and hydraulic models to assess potential flooding impacts on both the built and natural environment.

Create flexible flooding simulations

Combine your flood predictions with elevation data using the 2D Overland module to assess the impacts of extreme weather events on your community.

You can evaluate:

  • How levee breaches may impact floodplains
  • How floods can spread through cities
  • How storm surges can overflow sea defences

Gain maximum modelling flexibility with the Flexible Mesh module’s detailed and tailored meshes. You’ll be equipped to refine your results in large study areas to where your most important assets are located.

Future-proof against flooding

Mitigate the risks of sea level rise and consequential flooding by simulating and assessing which protective countermeasures to invest in.

MIKE+’s modelling capabilities can help you with almost any flooding application:

  • Flood mitigation and management
  • Flood risk analysis and flood hazard mapping
  • Flood contingency planning
  • Flood defence failure impact studies
  • Climate change assessments

Solve urban flooding issues with transversal tools

Analyse complex flooding issues by coupling our 2D Overland module with the MIKE1D PipeFlow module.

Used together, these modules can help you decide what to do with issues like:

  • Flooding due to cloudbursts, extreme rainfall, and climate change
  • Insufficient capacity in storm inlets
  • Insufficient pipe conveyance capacity and volume
  • System failures
  • Increased urbanisation, increased impervious surfaces and fast runoff components

Investigate coastal flooding issues by connecting to your MIKE 21/3 FM model

Modelling complex river systems feeding into coastal environments, estuarial domains or stratified lakes has never been easier.

Dynamically couple your 2D or 3D marine model with your river (and collection system network) in MIKE+ to understand coastal flooding issues and stratification patterns.

  • Accurately represent the flow of a river (or pipe) in a stratified water body
  • Understand the mixing of freshwater into a saline environment
  • Investigate the impact of storm surge and tidal rivers on your city’s flood risk

The integrated water modelling platform

Powerful alone. Better together.

MIKE+ offers a full suite of integrated software solutions for water systems with a flexible and scalable model manager layer at its core. The MIKE+ platform allows you to plug and play with different modules to customise water management solutions. They’re powerful alone – but even better when used together.
Plus, some modules are transversal, so you can use them across your collection systems, rivers and flooding challenges. That’s the power of an integrated water modelling platform.
