DHI is the sole developer of their proprietary MIKE software. DHI has extensive experience and expertise in developing and applying advanced models to solvea broad range of hydrologic, hydraulic, and coastal problems in a variety of environments.

DHI core software includes 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D fully hydrodynamic surface flowand groundwater models (MIKE 11, MIKE 21, MIKE 3, MIKESHE) used to model flow, sediment transport, water quality in riverine, estuary and coastal systems.

DHI is the only company capable of modifying the MIKE source code and providing decision support tools that allow DHI to develop more complex models than consultants that do not have the ability to modify MIKE source code.
