TESTING OF MIKE 11 SOFTWARE

FR0242

March 1992

SUMMARY

I OBJECTIVE

To test the capabilities of the "Urban Pollution Management (UPM)" version of the MIKE 11 model against the requirement specification.

II REASON

The UPM programme has identified the need for a specific type of river impact model. No model existed to meet that specification. DHI have been funded to develop their MIKE 11 model to meet the specification. The upgraded model's capabilities need to be independently tested prior to recommending its use to the Industry.

III CONCLUSIONS

The model has been shown to meet all of the major requirements of the specification. Specifically the testing has demonstrated that:

  1. The required sediment/pollutant interactions can be modelled with MIKE 11.
  2. MOSQITO output can be used to provide lateral inputs directly to a MIKE 11 model.
  3. The event summary statistics module provides the data required on concentration and duration for individual events.

IV RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. MIKE 11 should be used as the UPM River Impact Model.
  2. The graphics package should be further improved.
  3. A training course for the UPM derivative of MIKE 11 should be made available.
  4. The User Guide should be improved in certain specific respects.

V RESUME OF CONTENTS

The report is divided into three parts. The first part covers the background to the work and includes Section 1 (the introduction) and Section 2 on the quality of the software engineering. Part II covers testing of the UNIX conversion and includes Sections 3 to 5. In Section 3 the hydraulic model is tested for stability. Section 4 is a mass balance check and Section 5 examines the basic water quality model. Part III includes Sections 6 to 9 which examine the UPM development modules. Section 6 covers sediment and pollutant interactions, Section 7 the MOSQITO interface and Section 8 the event summary statistics module. The conclusions and recommendations are given in Section 9.
