Neu in MIKE URBAN Version 2012

Model Manager

Data formats and data editing

  • Based on ArcGIS 10.1
  • Reduced time spent exporting data for simulation of large setups
  • Improved network tracing speed
  • Improved speed of calculating statistical results
  • Improved memory handling with respect to loading result files

New import task for the pipe design tool

GUI: Tools | User Tools | Pipe Design Wizard
Manual: Collection System User Guide, section 12

The pipe design tool allows to create a MEX-file that can be used to import and update the elements in MIKE URBAN once the optimal set of values has been identified. A new pre-defined import job 'CS-Update From Pipe Design' has been created to allow for easy import from this MEX file.

Calibration plots and reports

GUI: EPANET | Measurement Stations, MOUSE | Measurement Stations, SWMM | Measurement Stations, Model Results | Calibration Plots and Reports
Manual: Model Manager User Guide, chapter 23

The Calibration Plots and Reports allow for an easy comparison and statistical analysis between simulation results and measured time series:

  • One click to open up time series window with both simulated time series and associated measured time series (that are linked to the measurement stations)
  • Layout of time series plots saved automatically for later re-use
  • Plots can either show comparisons between time series or statistical data
  • The tool can be used with both Water Distribution and Collection Systems projects.

Result verification tool

GUI: Tools| Result Verification
Documentation: The Result verification documentation is launched from the MIKE URBAN Documentation Index.

The MIKE URBAN 'Result Verification Tool' allows to compare results from hydraulic network computations produced by different variants of a collection system model. This could be comparison between results from a former version of the model and results from a new version updated with the latest information from an asset management system.

Collection System Toolbox

GUI: Tools | Toolbox, MOUSE | Catchment Tools | Catchment Slope and Length
Manual: Model Manager User Guide, chapter 21, MIKE URBAN Tutorials, section 2.3.

A new set of tools for improved usability especially when building a 1D/1D storm water model:

  • Catchment slope and length calculations
  • Cross section extraction from DEM
  • Lateral snapping of nodes
  • Auto connection of overland network to storm water network
  • Sequential labelling of nodes

Collection System – MOUSE


GUI: Simulation | Run MOUSE
Manual: Collection System User Guide, chapter 8, MIKE 1D reference manual and What is included in MIKE 1D document.

A new 1D engine, MIKE 1D, is released together with a 64 bit version of the MOUSE engine. A choice of numerical engine is hence offered when you start a simulation: The 32/64-bit version of the MOUSE engine and the MIKE 1D. The 64-bit version of the MOUSE engine is no longer constrained by the standard 32 bit OS limitation with respect to memory consumption. If working on a 32 bit OS the 32 bit engine version will be used. MIKE 1D is the new engine released for the first time with the 2012 release. The engine is parallelised and covers runoff and pipeflow in the first version. Please refer to separate documentation on MIKE 1D for details.

2D overland flow

GUI: MOUSE | 2D Overland Flow
Manual: Collection System User Guide

The 2D overland flow features have been extended with:

  • Ability to apply 2D initial conditions as constant value or from polygons or from external polygons layers (water level and bed resistance)
  • Ability to include water level and discharge boundaries as constant values or dfs0 files
  • The possibility to include spatially distributed rainfall (dfs2 file)

Climate Change Tool

GUI: Tools | Climate Change
Manual: Model Manager User Guide, chapter 18

Sea level rise included (if varying water level boundary is included)

Water Distribution

GUI: EPANET | WD Tools | Advisor
Manual: Water Distribution User Guide, section 3.8.

Advisor is a set of tools designed to support the analysis of the water supply and water distribution systems. It helps you to check the results of the hydraulic simulations, understand system deficiencies, and improve design and operation. The following tools are included:

  • Pipe criticality
  • Sustainability analysis
  • Cost analysis

Catchment Analyst

GUI: MOUSE/SWMM | Catchment Tools | Catchment Delineation Wizard
Manual: Model Manager User Guide, section 13.6.

Both network and DEM are taken into account in the catchment delineation.

MIKE URBAN Service Pack 1, February 2013

Please note that the service packs are accumulative, i.e. corrections and fixes released with a previous service pack are included in the newest service pack as well.

Module/type Error/Inconvenience/New feature Status
Editing Under Tools|Customize|General Settings you can choose to disable undo/redo information within edit sessions. Disabling this will decrease memory consumption. You need to restart MIKE URBAN before this change has any effect. New feature
Calibration Plots and Tools Better handling of large datasets Improved
Import/Export * OleDB storage option discontinued
* Impossible to import Station in m_Station with the import wizard
Longitudinal profile A secondary axis is generated when you plot the link discharge (or any other type of results) instead of using the same axis as before Fixed
MIKE 1D * If you want to include the catchment discharge in the network simulation you need to explicitly provide the resultfile as an input file - similar to the runoff result file for MOUSE network simulations. New fields have been added to the simulation dialog to support this.

* MIKE 1D cannot use a multiple dfs0-file in a boundary as defined by catchment. After the correction:
If a boundary using "defined as catchment" has specified a file where the "time series ID" is filled by the user the time series with the specified ID is applied to all catchments. If the "Time series ID" is empty then each catchment connection will use the time series corresponding to the catchment name. Same functionality as for MOUSE engine.
MOUSE * When the Pressure Main (PM) feature is used in the MOUSE engine the initial water level in the PM branch between the pumping station and the “Tail Node” is set equal to the defined tail node water level.

The setting of the initial water level does not recognize valves as part of the PM branch. The result is that the water level is not initialized between any valve and the pumping station.

After correction the water level will also be initialized through valves except for fully closed valves.
EPANET * Possibility of partial load of result files from EPANET (new feature)
* Simulation progress bar does not always update correctly during simulation
* Demand statistics should use the information from the simulation period
* Pressure Zone Mapping not always consistent
Fixed/New feature
SWMM * If disabling options in the "Process selection" group on the Project dialog the SWMM simulation would fail Fixed
Submodel manager * Split operation has been optimized with respect to performance
* Merge functionality does not handle Scenario Manager information correctly
* 'Create Selection' option does not work
Demands * The Aggregation tool in Demand Allocation does not transfer the Cyclic profile nor the Demand Category that means that you have to re-assign the cyclic profile manually in the Multiple Demand dialog
* When using the option 'Assign demands to multiple demands', it does not take into account the option 'Use demand category', it always aggregates based on the category
* Distributed demands: the functionality under the 'Node Demand Coefficients' tab not working. If no demand coefficient is specified, then no demand is distributed. If no Node Demand coefficient is entered then it should automatically distribute equally between the nodes
* The demand allocation connections are not updated graphically when selecting the Pipe or the Node from the dialog.
Simplification wizard * Scrubbing does not always select correct nodes and does not always delete those selected
* Trimming when working on data set containing parallel pipes could cause process to terminate * Scrubbing removed pipes but not the corresponding nodes
* When there is an existing selection the simplification is not executed
* Reconnecting a catchment to the nearest node not always working
* If the back button is used going past the "Select area of interest" the flags are cleared * Catchment would connect to outlets during automatic connection
* After simplification where catchments have been moved the catchment connections are not regenerated
* Merge method and merging for friction loss and material not working correctly
* 'Assign to Nearest feature' not working correctly
* The "Roughness" for the merged pipe is wrong when the merge method is not weighted average
Misc * Various updates of documentation and error messages, minor corrections on dialogs
* Various translation strings updated
* Autoscaling of axis in longitudinal profile improved and default drawing option for discharge changed
* Easy way of copying status codes into MU (new feature)
* Improvement of performance when choosing to plot a time series from the list of available time series
* If selecting a catchment in the dialog while e.g. the time area dialog was also open could cause termination
* The ID displayed when plotting a time series from a dfs2 sis not clear
* The SWMMotu2MVwin tool-program does not handle the SWMM option for link level in absolute elevation correctly
* ArcGIS 10.1 SP1: Adding Statistics layer and then plot the LP will make MIKE URBAN crash
* Select of Dead-End pipes not working correctly * When selecting curve type from "MOUSE | Runoff Models | Parameters Time Area" - the list would display all curve types in the model.
* Scenario manager: Change of scenario with database upgraded from previous version to 2012 could cause termination if scenarios were changed in the scenario manager
* Problems when unselecting elements or inverting selections if selection was done in specific way
