Content
This course is part of an ongoing collaboration between Queens University Belfast and THE ACADEMY by DHI. The three-day, hands-on course will give you a basic introduction to the underlying science behind wave and tidal models. You will learn how to use and assess the results of the two-dimensional hydrodynamic model MIKE 21 HD FM and the spectral wave model MIKE 21 SW. Typical application areas of MIKE 21 Flow Model HD FM include assessment of hydrodynamic conditions in nonstratified waters, coastal flooding and storm surge, inland flooding and overland flow, forecast and warning systems. The module simulates unsteady flow taking into account bathymetry, sources and external forcing. The hydrodynamic module of MIKE 21 Flow Model HD FM provides the basis for computations such as sediment and mud transport, transport of heat and suspended matter, oil spill, agent based modelling and ecology. MIKE 21 SW is used for the assessment of wave climates in offshore and coastal areas. MIKE 21 SW is particularly applicable for wave prediction and analysis on regional and local scale.
