Mike Flow is a model made of special modules which can simulate flow and water level variations influenced by physical factors such as tides, winds and currents. It can be used for hydrodynamical and environmental simulations in lakes, estuaries, bays and coastal areas. The modules allow the simulation of several coastal phenomena combined in 2D, such as shoaling, refraction, reflection, run-up and flood, diffraction, adversion-dispersion, ecological modeling, sand and sediment transport, assessment of spills, tracking particles, and wave breaking. It can also simulate specific phenomena such as tsunamis, secondary oceanographic circulations, vortex and whirlpools, harbour resonance and dam-breaks.

 

MIKE 21 BW is a special model for the analysis of wave disturbance in harbours and coastal areas. It allows the simulation of several coastal phenomena combined in a bi-dimensional way, such as shoaling, refraction, reflection, run-up, diffraction, dispersion, moving shoreline and wave breaking. It also can simulate the generation of wave grouping and harbour resonance.
 

Mike 3 AD Simulates the transport, dispersion and decay of dissolved or suspended substances. Typically used in cooling water and sewage outfall studies.
 

Mike 21 SW is a spectral wind-wave model based on unstructured meshes. It simulates the growth, decay and transformation of wind generated waves and swells in offshore and coastal areas.
 

Mike 21 ST FM is a sediment transport model for the assessment of the sediment transport rates and initial rates of bed level change for non-cohesive sediment resulting from currents or combined wave-current flows. This allows the identification of potential areas of erosion or deposition.
 

MIKE 3 HD FM is a model that calculates the variations of surface elevation and currents due to external forces. Describes a large number of hydraulic phenomena, can used for any flow surface free in 3D. The Hydrodynamic Module is based on the numerical solution of the three-dimensional incompressible Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations invoking the assumptions of Boussinesq and of hydrostatic pressure. Thus, the model consists of continuity, momentum, temperature, salinity and density equations and is closed by a turbulent closure scheme.
 

MIKE 21 ST can simulate the rate of sediment transport in natural environments such as rivers, estuaries and coastal areas, and the interaction with man-made structures such as harbours, bridges, breakwaters and jetties, getting outcomes comparable to field observations and practical rules.
 

LITSTP can be applied to the study of non-cohesive sediment transport in waves and currents, where the input parameters are the wave, current and sediment properties for the specific point. The assessment of transport rates is essential for the estimation of littoral sediment drift (may be calculated by the module LITDRIFT). The concentration profiles becomes vital information when the vertical position of water intakes is planned and when investigating harbour siltation. Having the possibility to include undertow effects in the calculations, the formation of bars on a cross-shore profile may be investigated (by the module LITPROF).

LITDRIFT can be applied to the study of wave driven currents and longshore sediment transport of non-cohesive sediment on a long uniform beach. A facility in LITDRIFT enables the user to calculate the annual sediment budget for the location, based on time series as input.

Another facility enables the user to transfer the wave climate from deeper water to a point in the profile or to obtain the conditions at a specific single point in the profile for the entire time series with the purpose to calculate the sediment transport later by the STP Model Type Multiple STP Calculations.

LITLINE Módulo que calcula la posición de la línea de costa basado en una serie de entradas de tiempo como es un clima de oleaje. Además puede aplicarse para el estudio de la evolución de la línea costera, influenciada por diversas estructuras, fuentes y sumideros. Algunas aplicaciones específicas son:

- Optimización funcional de las defensas costeras.
- Diseño de recuperación de las playas a través de la retroalimentación.
- Impacto en la línea costera resultante a partir de obras costeras.

LITLINE es una herramienta potente y fiable para la evaluación de impacto-diseño-optimización de muchos proyectos de ingeniería costera.

LITPROF describes the cross-shore profile changes based on a timeseries of wave events. LITPROF can be applied to study the evolution of a cross-shore profile, influenced by a time varying wave field. Some specific applications for LITPROF are:

-  Profile response to various conditions
-  Fate of nourished material
-  Null point location of structures

LITPROF is therefore an aid for understanding the mechanisms of crossshore sediment transport and a tool for estimation of on-offshore transport rates.

LITTREN can be applied to the study of many types of costal sediment transport problems where non-equilibrium effects are important. The most common and significant application being in the backfilling of navigation channels and pipe trenches in the coastal zone.

The model is suitable both for investigating the impact of storms and/or long-term maintenance dredging requirements, although in the latter case computational requirements are likely to be high. LITTREN can also be used to investigate the stability of disposal mounds in moderate water depth and the ingress of sediments into settling basins.
