For engineering faculty we are offering the MIDUSS
Version 2 Network edition for a one time cost of US$ 995. You will receive:
- MIDUSS Version 2 Network license with unlimited seats per
Install it in a lab, your own office PC and any graduate
There is no complicated keycode system, just enter the license
serial number on the installation screen.
The Network version has a very low administrative overhead
effort level which your IT support staff will appreciate.
- You receive one (1) set of User manuals, soft cover, total
of approx 600 pages. Reference Manual includes
comprehensive theory and practice. The Tutorial manual
includes a detailed example using MIDUSS Version 2.
- Includes one FREE MIDUSS Version 2 Single User
license intended for non-network use (e.g. laptop
installation for out-of-office use)
- MIDUSS Version 2 CD media which includes 2 hours of
- 90 days Technical Support and Free Updates from our web
site. You can add an additional 12 months Support and
Updates for only US$ 120.
MIDUSS Version 2 is
a great tool to help you teach hydrology and drainage design to
Ask your students questions like:
- In the Chicago storm, will a change in 'r' cause a change
in peak runoff?
- A catchment has 40% impervious area. Using a Huff
storm, will the 3rd or 4th quartile give a higher runoff peak?
- For a given storm, the SCS method and Horton infiltration
model may give the same total rainfall loss; will the peak
runoff be different with these two methods?
- A pond outflow is controlled by an orifice and a weir.
What would be the effect on the outflow peak if you raise the
- How is the runoff hydrograph affected by changing the
overland routing option?
- A channel cross section comprises a low flow channel and
flood banks that are heavily overgrown with shrubs.
Will 1-dimensional or 2-dimensional uniform flow analysis give
a higher depth of flow?
MIDUSS is the ideal software tool to answer these questions.
MIDUSS combines hydrology and design into one package.
MIDUSS provides a tool-box of modeling alternatives.
Students learn quickly how runoff prediction is sensitive to the
choice of model algorithm.
There are many hydrology models included so that the student
can quickly learn the sensitivity of using a model choice.
Once a hydrograph is generated the practicing engineer needs
to design a network of elements to convey the flow. MIDUSS
lets the student design an unlimited network of pipes, channels,
detention ponds, infiltration trenches, culverts, diversions.
Practical default designs are presented throughout.
MIDUSS is also easy-to-use. No complicated batch text
files to setup, do a run, and spend too much time analyzing
results; then doing a re-run. All very tedious and not
a very enriching learning environment.
MIDUSS is different. It's completely interactive -
students can see the results of their modeling and design decisions
immediately - enhancing the learning experience.
