Advanced Numerical Simulations Unit

Numerical modelling has proved to be an increasingly effective tool for finding solutions to hydraulic engineering problems. LHI utilises a vast range of numerical models in its projects and research work. These include industry standard, home developed executables together with fully commercial software packages such as MIKE products. LHI possesses the exclusive licence for DHI’s MIKE softwares and conducts a wide range of numerical model studies. The Institute has the necessary field measurement capability and a staff with wide understanding of water related physical processes as well as modelling expertise to enable the most effective application of these mathematical modelling techniques.
