COURSE DESCRIPTION

MIKE URBAN WATER QUALITY Introduction to the modelling of water quality in collection systems

This two-day, hands-on course gives you an introduction to model water quality in urban collection system networks using MIKE URBAN. The aim is to enable you to set up and run basic water quality models and to assess and present the simulation results. MIKE URBAN covers modelling of surface runoff, flows and water quality.

THE ACADEMY BY DHI

The water quality in the collection system and in the discharges/overflow has an impact on both the infrastructure and the recipients. The formation hydrogen sulphide in sanitary and combined sewer systems causes odour and corrosion nuisances as well as unsafe working environment. This is a serious problem, which affects large areas of a typical sanitary sewer system. The mitigation of the odour and corrosion damages is costly. Other examples are the combined sewer overflow to recipients, which impacts both the aquatic life and causes a health risk to human activities. The management and treatment of storm water quality is yet another topic, which also has impact on the receiving waters.

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.

MIKE URBAN models the build-up and wash-off processes of water quality components on the surface which are thereafter transported by advectiondispersion by the flow in the network. The on-going biological processes are modelled using ECO Lab coupled to the MIKE 1D hydraulic engine.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

INTEGRATED URBAN WATER SYSTEMS (IUWS) Integrated modelling of water quality in urban areas

This two-day thematic course provides the theoretical basis for the modelling of integrated urban water systems. It includes some interesting case studies of practical applications and hands-on exercises based on the WEST software package. Both policy makers and the industry are increasingly realising the necessity of adopting an integrated approach to water management. Urban water management presents big challenges, but also great opportunities to minimise both the impact on the receiving water (and on the environment in general, e g energy and materials consumption, pollutants emission) and any costs. Options like water quality based real time control, sewer operation minimising odour and corrosion problems, global sewer control, construction of retention volumes and treatment facilities, water reuse, nutrient recovery, can be better designed and evaluated by using models, which include the interaction between all units involved. Optimising individual subsystems may not be the best solution for the entire system. The integrated assessment of the system provides the opportunity to develop holistic solutions and/or provide the justification for prioritising implementation plans in a manner that will provide the best value and greatest benefits for the receiving water. COURSE TOPICS 

Hydraulic models simplification

COURSE DESCRIPTION

SCREENING OF URBAN FLOOD RISK Cost-effective mapping of urban flood risk using MIKE 21 Flood Screening Tool (FST)

In this one-day course you will learn to apply a methodology (using MIKE 21 FST) by which only the surface runoff of the excess part of the rainfall volume is modelled. This enables you to map large geographic areas with limited time and effort. The course includes a step-by-step review of the modelling approach from initial DEM processing to result presentation as well as hands-on exercises.

THE ACADEMY BY DHI

Mapping the effects of extreme rain events can be time consuming and thereby costly if models of storm water systems for entire cities are to be established. In many cases, necessary information on the geometry of pipes and gullies is also unavailable. During an extreme rain event, only a limited portion of the rain volume is gathered by the existing storm water system or has time to infiltrate.

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.

Floods caused by extreme rain events are an increasing problem for cities of all sizes world-wide. Densifying of urban developments and climate change are stress factors which increase the pressure to deal with the problems. Pluvial flooding and climate change are new topics on most city planners’ agendas. COURSE TOPICS 

Introduction to pluvial flooding

Overview of pluvial flood modelling tools and techniques - advantages and disadvantages

Data need and their use

Processing and preparation of digital elevation model (DEM)

Case studies

Result presentation

Mapping flood risks, values and economic costs related to flooding

Strategies to manage surface runoff within existing and planned developments

COURSE DESCRIPTION

MODELLING OF STORM WATER FOR GREEN CITIES Methods and structures

This two-day course gives you an introduction to different approaches to the modelling of various types of green infrastructure in MIKE URBAN and their effect on different types of storm events. In addition, you are also introduced to storm water quality and modelling thereof as well as storm water quality treatment options. The course encompasses all types of the green infrastructure practices on the local level thus including bio-retention cells, rain gardens, green roofs, infiltration trenches, permeable pavements, rain barrels and vegetative swales. In recent years we have experienced increased focus on making cities water sustainable. Today many cities strive towards integrating the entire urban water cycle into the urban planning. In this way, environmental degradation is minimised and the aesthetic and recreational appeal of the cities improved. Concurrently, cities also need to adapt to a changing climate. Cities and water utilities need to be able to quantify and document the effects of introducing green infrastructure, for instance in relation to climate change adaptation options, the improvement of water quality in recipients and rainwater harvesting in cities with water shortage.

COURSE TOPICS 

Modelling of green solutions at screening level

Modelling the different elements of a green infrastructure at a detailed hydraulic level

On-going developments in urban storm water modelling with MIKE URBAN

COURSE DESCRIPTION

URBAN FLOODING - ANALYSIS AND MANAGEMENT Preparing for flooding and the impact of climate change on your city

This two-day course focuses on climate change and flooding with an emphasis on tools for analysing impacts of climate changes in urban areas. Thus, you learn about the practical application of flood management tools and their constraints, as well as how to develop flood risk assessments and maps. The course includes presentations, discussions and hands-on exercises in using the different software tools to support risk assessment. City water planners and decision makers have to adapt to a changing climate. Climate change is expected to change the distribution of precipitation in both time and space. This will change the flood risk profile of all cities. Accordingly, cities and water utilities need to decide which adaptation measures to prioritise and implement. Climate change assessment often requires integrated modelling of flooding. This is a combined result of local heavy rainfall, overtopping river or coastal flooding. Flood modelling and risk assessment – based on software tools ranging from simple GIS analysis to coupled 1D-2D hydrodynamic modelling – are important for decision makers in order to minimise the costs related to extreme flooding. COURSE TOPICS 

Global and regional climate change models and predictions of climate changes

Combined flood risks from sewers, rivers, lakes and the sea

Overview of flood modelling techniques

FLOOD TOOL BOX: presentation and practical use of various methods and tools to assess the current and future flood risk of urban areas

Different types of data and their use

Mapping flood risks, values and economic costs related to flooding

Methods to evaluate the effectiveness of proposed adaptation measures

Cases of tackling climate change challenges through active control rather than through traditional methods of upgrading

Examples of international urban flooding and climate change adaptation

Hands-on exercises (related to FLOOD TOOL BOX, mapping flood risks, cost-benefit analyses)

COURSE DESCRIPTION

FLOOD RISK MANAGEMENT How to prepare for and manage floods

In this this one-day, thematic course we aim to provide you with an overview of integrated solutions available to allow you to address disaster risk management with respect to floods. How can you make a difference in preparing and subsequently manage floods. Disasters are of concern for almost all countries and are growing in terms of people affected and economic losses. A majority of all disasters today are related to hydro-meteorological factors, with floods (inland and coastal) as the main factor causing disasters. A changing climate will increase the risks for many regions. In recent years several floods have resulted in severe damage and health problems due to lack of timely and coordinated communication and lack of preparedness of local government and support services. The missing integration of knowledge and dissemination of information causes greater damage and hence costs. COURSE TOPICS 

What is disaster risk management

Prevention and mitigation of floods

Improving preparedness

Prediction and warning,

Response in form of flood maps and dissemination of information to the public

Presentation of integrated solutions for flood risk management

Examples of local/regional/international cases

Legislative framework (optional and depending on the office)
