If you want software with short simulation times that is useful in real-time applications – look no further. The Particle Tracking module is less computationally demanding compared to Eulerian-based transport modules. Furthermore, you can run the Particle Module in a decoupled mode based on pre-calculated hydrodynamic inputs, making it even more fast and efficient!

Having the Particle Tracking module and MIKE’s 2D and 3D flexible mesh Flow models is a powerful duo. You can define particle properties such as size, density, setting velocity and critical shear stress and track them as they move with the flow. Calculate the path of each particle and output the spatial plot of sediment concentration classes in 2D or 3D depending on the hydrodynamic model.
Track individual particles of different sizes, sources and positions within the water column to visualise flow patterns, particularly eddies and recirculation cells. Examine the movement of material from dredging and disposal activities. With MIKE 21/3 Particle Tracking, the particles/substances may be a pollutant of any kind, conservative or non-conservative. This includes suspended sediment particles, inorganic phosphorous, nitrogen, bacteria or chemicals.

DHI’s experts can review your sediment dispersion concerns and build a Particle Tracking model to provide scientific support for potential solutions.
MIKE 21/3 PT allows the user to create 2D-maps containing the instantaneous output data which consists of particle concentration and erosion / deposition / net sedimentation. Users can also create 2D-maps containing the averaged or accumulated output data consisting of particle concentration, erosion / deposition /net sedimentation and exceeding concentration.
With the help of the MIKE Particle Track toolbox, it is possible to reverse 2D and 3D flow fields to investigate sources of pollution and/or debris.
MIKE 21/3 PT is operated through a fully Windows integrated Graphical User Interface and is compiled as a true 64-bit application. Support is also provided at each stage by an Online Help System so you’re never working alone.
As part of the versatile MIKE system, MIKE 21/3 PT is also supported by pre-and post-processing, manuals and technical support.
