MOUSE, short for MOdel for Urban SEwers, is a computer program that models collection system for urban wastewater and stormwater. MOUSE is the first micro-computer based software in DHI Water.Environment.Health and it was developed in 1983. The MOUSE engine is used in the CS - Pipeflow module of the hydraulic modeling software MIKE URBAN.[1]

Modules[edit]

MOUSE consists the following modules:

HD – Pipe Flow: computing unsteady flows in pipe and channel networks

RDII – Rainfall Dependent Inflow/Infiltration: continuous modeling of the runoff process

RTC – Real-Time Control: defines and simulates real-time control schemes for urban drainage and sewer systems

PD - Pipe Design: automatically calculates pipe diameters for pipes to be (re)designed based on user-defined criteria.

LTS – Long Term Simulations and Statistics: continuous simulations of long time series, including wet and dry weather.

ST - Sediment Transport: simulates in-pipe sediment transport, erosion and deposition for uniform or graded sediments.

AD - Advection-Dispersion: simulates the transport and linear decay of dissolved pollutants.

WQ - Water Quality: simulates a range of water quality processes, including decay of BOD/COD in biofilm and in the water phase, hydrolysis of suspended matter, growth of biomass, oxygen consumption, etc.

Applications[edit]

MOUSE can be used for analysing CSOs and SSOs, evaluating RDII, network capacity and bottlenecks, predicting local flooding, estimating sediment build-up and transport, optimization and design of RTC solutions, analysing water quality and sediment problems, and real-time modeling embedded in RTC solutions.
