MIKE 21C is one of the most well established tools for simulating the development in the river bed and channel plan form caused by changes in the hydraulic regime.
Simulated processes include bank erosion, scouring and shoaling brought about by activities such as construction and dredging or seasonal fluctuations in flows.
Typical MIKE 21C applications:
- Design protection schemes against bank erosion
- Evaluate measures to reduce or manage shoaling
- Analyse alignments and dimensions of navigation channels for minimising maintenance dredging
- Predict sedimentation of water intakes, outlets, locks, harbours and reservoirs
- Forecast the impact of bridge, tunnel and pipeline crossings on river channel hydraulics and morphology
- Optimise restoration plans for habitat environment in channel floodplain systems
MIKE 21C is a specialised tool for the serious river morphology modeller. It is, in a sense, DHI’s collective knowledge made available to river engineers.
