COAST AND MARINE Effective solutions for complex environments

STANDARD TRAINING COURSES


COAST AND MARINE THE ACADEMY by DHI provides training courses and packages in topics related to coasts and marine environments such as shoreline management, scour around marine structures, risk assessment of environmental noise impact and monitoring and management of estuaries. We also provide training in using our coast and marine software to support your activities. Our palette of courses and capacity building packages is designed to fit your needs and challenges. We offer standard and/or tailored training - face-2-face as well as online. Coastal environments are continuously reshaped by natural forces and there is increasing pressure on our coasts from the competing needs of commercial, recreational and residential interests. Careful planning and comprehensive assessment is required to safeguard the coasts for future generations. Planning, design and construction of ports and marine structures as well as any marine operation require a range of hydraulic and environmental engineering services and tools to ensure viable design, safe and efficient operation and minimal environmental impact.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

MODELLING LONG-TERM SHORELINE EVOLUTION IN COMPLEX COASTAL PROJECTS Using MIKE 21 FM Shoreline Morphology (SM)

This two-day, hands-on course gives you a good understanding of the capabilities of the new MIKE 21 FM Shoreline Morphology (MIKE 21 FM SM). The aim is to enable you to set up and use the shoreline model in complex coastal projects as well as elaborate on the differences between shoreline model and for instance DHI’s LITTORAL PROCESSES FM.

THE ACADEMY BY DHI

The traditional numerical tools used for studying coastal morphology include oneline models such as LITTORAL PROCESSES 1D FM and 2D models (eg MIKE 21 ST FM ). However, the development of the coastal profile is not sufficiently accurate in these models to allow the models to simulate real long-term evolution.

MIKE Powered by DHI courses focus on practical skills, hands-on exercises and teaching you how to get the most out of your software. These courses also enable you to understand the power of the MIKE tools for building decision support systems.

The new MIKE 21 Shoreline Morphology combines the detailed 2D sediment transport fields from MIKE 21 ST FM with a one-line description for the shoreline evolution. This enables long-term prediction of shoreline evolution in cases where 2D effects are important, e.g. for complex bathymetries or coastal structures. COURSE TOPICS 

Module 1: Introduction to MIKE 21 FM Shoreline Morphology (MIKE 21 FM SM) Keywords: longshore and cross-shore sediment transport processes, acute and chronic erosion problems, MIKE 21 FM SM concept

Module 2: Introduction to Shoreline Morphology Mesh Generator tools Keywords: description of Shoreline Morphology inputs, making to inputs using the Shoreline Morphology Mesh Generator tools, hands-on exercises focusing on generation of inputs and model set-up

Module 3: Using the Shoreline Morphology tools in practice Keywords: Steps in completing a study with the MIKE 21 FM SM, speeding up morphological simulations, practical examples of speeding-up simulations

Module 4: A Practical hands-on example: Palm Beach, Queensland

RISK ASSESSMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE IMPACTS Using the Underwater Acoustics Simulator (UAS)

This two-day course teaches you the fundamentals of underwater acoustics modelling with the aim of being able to carry out biological risk assessments of environmental noise impacts for e.g. wind farms, seismic surveys, shipping, dredging and other human activities. Marine mammals and other marine life face threats from many different human activities, including fishing, habitat destruction and man-made noise. Increased background noise and specific sound sources can impact marine animals in several ways. The potential impacts include sounds that cause marine animals to alter their behaviour, prevent marine animals from hearing important sounds (masking), cause hearing loss (temporary or permanent), or damage tissue. The Underwater Acoustics Simulator (UAS) module in MIKE simulates propagation of noise in the far-field with a state of the art Range dependent Acoustic Model (RAM). UAS provides the option to specify a number of outputs in terms of sound exposure level or transmission loss depending on the objective of the environmental risk assessment. COURSE TOPICS 

Introduction to underwater acoustics

Biology and marine impact assessment

Effects of noise on aquatic life (e.g. fish and marine mammals)

Setting up a UAS model with site specific properties

SHORELINE MANAGEMENT How to protect and develop our coasts!

The aim of this modular, instructor-led, online course is to provide professionals involved in shoreline management with available tools, methodologies and procedures, which can help sustainable management of the physical environment in the coastal zone. The course will be based on DHI’s e-Book ‘Shoreline Management Guidelines”. An increasing number of conflicts in coastal areas and unintended consequences are caused by the extensive development of industry, infrastructure and tourism development projects - and at the same time climate change expose a challenge at many locations. In addition, many other human activities deprive our shores of a natural supply of sand, such as coastal protection works, river regulation works, sand mining, damn constructions, port constructions etc. Coastal environments are transient, continuously reshaped by the natural processes of the waves, tides, surges, erosion and deposition. The course will provide you with an understanding of how to work with nature in planning for various human projects interfering with the dynamic shoreline in the coastal zone.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

COASTAL SEDIMENT TRANSPORT AND MORPHOLOGY Basic processes and models for sediment transport and bed dynamics in the coastal zone

This modular, self-paced, online course presents a broad overview of the field of coastal engineering in a number of lectures. First lecture gives a basic course in coastal hydraulics, i.e. waves and currents. Then a lecture focusing on the description of the detailed mechanisms behind sediment transport in the coastal zone is given. Having established the basic process understanding an introduction to different coastal protection schemes is given. In order to quantify the coastal phenomena in real projects, the most used numerical model types are presented in two overview lectures describing the background for numerical modelling as well as the different possible applications. Finally the course is rounded off by a discussion of how to couple the knowledge and modelling capabilities for estimating the impact of climate change on the coast. Coastal engineering is a field where three skills are needed: 1) A basic understanding of the processes, 2) (numerical) modelling skills and 3) a thorough understanding of the context of the given project (coastal protection, morphological impact from structures, climate change, etc.). Coastal environments are transient, continuously reshaped by the natural processes of the waves, tides, surges, erosion and deposition.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

DREDGING AND RECLAMATION Processes and management

In this one-day, introduction course you are given an overview of the physical processes of dredging and reclamation and their impacts on marine environments. The focus is on the environmental impacts of dredging and reclamation projects and the available tools and procedures that can help to sustainably manage these projects both during the design and implementation of the works.

THE ACADEMY BY DHI

Coastal environments have diverse environmental receptors sensitive to potential impacts arising from dredging and reclamation. These include habitats such as coral reefs, natural resources such as fisheries, economic resources such as water intakes and socio-cultural resources such as tourism facilities. Coupled with the fact that the physical processes of currents and waves can transfer the potential impacts of dredging and reclamation many kilometres from the work area, it becomes clear that the management of environmental impacts of dredging and reclamation is a challenging activity.

MIKE Powered by DHI courses focus on practical skills, hands-on exercises and teaching you how to get the most out of your software. These courses also enable you to understand the power of the MIKE tools for building decision support systems.

The course provides you with the necessary knowledge of the physical and biological impact processes resulting from dredging and reclamation works and how these can be minimized through project planning and environmental management during execution. COURSE TOPICS 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

SCOUR AROUND MARINE STRUCTURES Dealing with scour related problems in water environments

This two-day, thematic course introduces you to the procedures of analysis related to assessing scour risk at marine structures. The focus is on offshore wind turbine foundations and how to protect against or mitigate the scour formation by applying scour protection systems of, for instance, rock dump or mattresses. After the course the participant will be able to identify and define scour issues, asses the risk of scour and possible mitigation solutions for various types of marine structures and obtain the recent knowledge gained over the last decade from significant development and research within the field of marine scour. Scour is a well-known issue for hydraulic and marine engineering. Scour occurs when structures are placed on erodible beds and exposed to current and waves. The foundations of e.g. offshore wind turbines are often erected in harsh hydrodynamic environments, exposed to tidal currents and large waves individually or in combination. Therefore, it is essential to have a detailed understanding of how these hydrodynamic environments affects the structure as a whole, including the foundation and the interaction between flow, structure and sea bed to ensure short– and long term stability. Evidently, the formation of scour around marine structures can pose a threat to the structural stability and the cables transporting electricity. COURSE TOPICS 

Flow and force processes in the presence of cylindrical structures

Explain drag, inertia and lift forces in currents and waves

Scour around marine structures including offshore wind turbine foundations, gravity based structures (GBS), cables and pipelines

Scour related problems: depravation of the general sea bed level, migration of large bed forms, edge scour and sinking of scour protections.

Scour in complex soils

Scour protections systems (counter measures): types, rock dump, mats, installation and monitoring

Hands-on exercises including computer simulations in MIKE 21

COURSE DESCRIPTION

PHYSICAL MODELLING OF MARINE STRUCTURES When, why and how!

The aim of this four-day, thematic course is to introduce you to the basic principles of scale modelling and the methodologies involved. The main focus is on our wave generation and acquisition system Wave Synthesizer and wave analysis software within the MIKE Zero software. Physical modelling is a recognised and well established technique for hydraulic studies. It bridges the gap between what can be simulated accurately using numerical models and the real world. It also facilitates the calibration of numerical models and increases confidence in future predictions. When designing coastal, harbour and other marine structures it is a challenge to secure resilience against wind, water and storms as well as long-term stability. A number of hydraulic structures with water/structure/land interaction cannot be modelled numerically in a sufficient way manner. Accordingly, our physical laboratories provide test facilities. COURSE TOPICS 

Cases suitable for physical modelling

Scaling laws

Metocean design conditions including climate change scenarios

Wave generation and analysis

Choice of scale and scaling model and materials used

Stability testing of coastal structures in 2D and 3D

Modelling impact forces

Modelling vessel movements and mooring forces

Model tests execution and results documentation

Hands-on experience in designing and conducting coastal lab experiments

COURSE DESCRIPTION

MARINE OPERATIONS Combined jack-up, dynamic positioning and marine scour engineering

This two-day course introduces you to aspects and implications of scour and seabed instability when positioning and jacking at a site. An understanding of the seabed, the ambient environment as well as the interaction with the rig provides valuable knowledge enabling you to make better and safe decisions. The course is divided in two parts:

THE ACADEMY offers a palette of courses and capacity building packages designed to fit your needs and challenges. We offer standard and/or tailored training - face-2face as well as online.

Part 1 focuses on jack-up and dynamic positioning (DP) addressing the critical phases from soft pinning to positioning and set down, the effects of weight on stability and trim combined as well as operational scenarios encompassing raising and lowering of legs, pre-loading and risk for punch-through. Related hands-on exercises take place in a virtual environment with simulators that model the physical leg and seabed interaction correctly.

MIKE Powered by DHI courses focus on practical skills, hands-on exercises and teaching you how to get the most out of your software. These courses also enable you to understand the power of the MIKE tools for building decision support systems.

Part 2 focuses on marine scour. Scour occurs when structures are placed on erodible beds and exposed to current and waves. Therefore, one of the most prominent risks to the stability of the jack-up vessels is scouring during the jacking phase. The assessment of the risk of scour and in turn risk of punchthrough requires detailed knowledge of the local environmental and soil conditions. Thus, the course includes detailed knowledge of the hydrodynamic challenges involved in engineering assessment of jack-up vessels during operation.

Thematic courses allow you to apply concepts, applications and decision support principles to the entire business process within current areas: aquaculture and agriculture, energy, climate change, flooding, coast and marine, surface and groundwater, urban water, industry, environment and ecosystems, product safety and environmental risk, etc.
