Virtual River is literally a “virtual river”,
modelling and representing the hydrodynamic behaviour of a real river.

Virtual River combines the hydrodynamic simulation with the exchange of data via a standardized interface.
During the simulation Virtual River takes over and incorporates each input given by control units or – in case of training staff – by a trainee.
In return Virtual River provides “sensor data” of any arbitrary location in the model.
Starting with version 4.0, Virtual River will have Mike1D from DHI as a second 1D-hydrodynamic engine, and HYDRO_AS-2D from Hydrotec is available for 2D simulation.
The decision to cooperate with DHI and Hydrotec was our first and vital step for heading towards providing Virtual River worldwide.
Basically Virtual River is a software package being available “of the shelf”.
It is designed for Microsoft Windows and can be used with any current Windows PC.
By providing “ready to use systems” we mainly adress those project partners who agree to have Virtual River as a common basis for final acceptance tests of control units.
Thus, we provide models which are implemented by a team of senior experts in the field of hydrodynamic models. All models are based on detailed discussions with you in order to clarify the focal aspects and all relevant hydraulic structures. The models will be proven and ready to be used in standardized formal testing procedures (e.g. factory acceptance tests).
