DHI Installs MIKE on Moffatt & Nichol’s HPC System

Moffatt & Nichol – one of the world’s leading specialised maritime planning and engineering firms – installed DHI’s software, the MIKE on their High Performance Computing (HPC) system.

Over the last two decades, HPC has become one of the fastest growing markets in the information technology sector. The demand for high-resolution, complex and large-scale numerical modelling studies is continuing to increase.

In order to help its clients run their models, DHI utilises the latest technologies in the MIKE software to improve the performance of the most CPU-intensive modelling simulations.

The company’s software for coastal and marine environments, MIKE 21 and MIKE 3 with Flexible Mesh, were developed with parallel computations using Message Passing Interface (MPI) technology. This enables it to utilise parallel computers, making it perfectly suited for HPC systems.

Moffatt & Nichol carry out computationally demanding simulations as part of their core business. As such, they recently purchased a Linux-based HPC cluster. With support from DHI, Oleg Mouraenko, Ph.D. (Senior Coastal Scientist at Moffatt & Nichol), set up MIKE by DHI software on their cluster.

The first benchmark test using a MIKE 3 Flexible Mesh model from a previous project showed a reduced run time – from one month to less than one day. Moffatt & Nichol have already run a number of complex high-resolution models that are only feasible to simulate on an HPC system.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
