3D wave modelling with MIKE 3 Wave FM

Online training for the busy modeller

Take a giant step further in your wave modelling
- and make it better and smarter!

This brand-new online course provides you with in-depth training on advanced 3D phase-resolving wave model that can be applied to ports & terminals, coastal areas, as well as the offshore and maritime industry.

Affordable and convenient high quality technical training!

Are you a professional, a researcher or similar in the fields of port, coastal and marine engineering? Do you have a basic knowledge of wave hydrodynamics and experience using wave modelling software such as MIKE 21 SW, MIKE 21 BW or similar?

Are you prepared to allocate a minimum of two hours of self-study each week as well as follow online sessions of two hours every week for four weeks?

If yes, you can benefit from this instructor-facilitated, online course. You will learn the features of MIKE 3 Wave FM, its typical applications and how the software compares to others, including its advantages and limitations. Upon completion of the course, you will be equipped to use MIKE 3 Wave FM in projects and be ready to know how to identify problems with your setup and fix them.
DHI has added extra course materials, which gives you the option of investing an extra four-five hours’ self-study per week to master the software at a greater depth.

MIKE 3 Wave FM

3D interface

Advanced 3D phase-resolving wave model that can be applied to ports & terminals, coastal areas as well as the offshore and maritime industry.

Flexible mesh

Flexible mesh-based tool for simulating fully non-linear and fully dispersive 3D waves with no depth restrictions in the model domain.

Coupling capabilities

Easy interfacing with existing MIKE 21 BW setups can be converted to MIKE 3 Wave FM model setups and there will be no more need for external tools calculation porosity (like in MIKE 21 BW).

Client testimonial

‘I learned a lot from this online training course although I am not familiar with MIKE 3. I thought that it was complicated, but after the four weeks of training and preparation of assignments, I realized how easy it is!
I recommend this course to expand your knowledge of the analysis of wave modelling and ports’.
