2.Danish Hydraulic Institute (DHI)
Danish Hydraulic Institute (DHI) is a research and consulting
organisation developing and applying advanced methods and technologies
within hydraulic and water resources engineering.
DHI offers a broad spectrum of services, software tools and model test
facilities related to offshore, coastal, port, river, water resources,
urban hydraulics and environmental engineering.
For DHI, it has always been fundamental to establish a thorough
understanding of the physics behind the hydraulic phenomena-and then
develop the appropriate tools. DHI's consultancy work thus combines sound
physical understanding with the most advanced methodologies available.
Since the establishment in 1964, projects have been undertaken in more
than 100 countries.
DHI is an independent self-supporting organisation. Affiliated to the
Danish Academy of Technical Sciences, it is a member of a group of
specialized institutes which cover a wide spectrum of applied technologies
and engineering services. The DHI staff numbers 210 (1996) of whom 140
hold PhD or MSC degrees.
The Bangladesh Regional Office has been established since 1988 to cater
