An Early Access version of RS MINERVE 2.0 is now available for members of the Hydro10 Association, public release is scheduled in Fall 2015.
This version facilitates the management and connection of RS MINERVE to other systems and provides new functionalities and models for flood forecasting as well as hydraulics and hydropower engineering.
Version 2.0.0 :
- Graphic interface improved
- New modular and extensible software architecture based on PRISM 5.0 and the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF)
- Channel routing models updated
- Turbine and hydropower models improved
- Integration of background images
- In the GIS module: functions to create full hydrological models from shapefiles
- Improved settings, with custom or predefined systems of units (SI International System, US Customary)
- Command lines tasks enables to invoke Visual Basic (VB) scripts from a command prompt. This opens the door to a wide scope applications, including real-time simulations.
- Windows® 7 or later
- Microsoft® .NET Framework 4.5 will be installed if not found

A course on hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE will take place on January 28 and 29 2015, at EPFL in Lausanne. The training is organized by the research centre CREALP, the Laboratory of Hydraulics Constructions (LCH) of EPFL, the Technical University of Valencia (UPV) and the Hydro10 Association.
The objective of this course is to provide foundational skills for hydrological-hydraulic modelling and to understand related problems.
First, the basics of hydrological systems will be presented for the interpretation of modelling results. Then, the RS MINERVE software is introduced to participants on the basis of a practical case study. Participants learn to approach modelling problems as a whole, from the definition of the hydrological basin to the calculation and analysis of simulation results.
The training will be given in french.

A PhD student of the University of Bristol is currently working on the improvements of rainfall estimations by merging different source of rainfall measurements, such as weather radars and rain gauges. He is also studying the applications of these improved rainfall estimations in hydrological and flood management studies.
Hydro10 is currently collaborating to provide a technical support to build the hydrological HBV model in RS MINERVE, to create meteorological databases and to use them for hydrological simulations.
RS MINERVE provides an effective framework for these hydro-meteorological studies and allows the users to deeply analyze different hydrological models based on different sets of meteorological data.
Hydro10 Association signed a convention for the developpement of the RS MINERVE tool. It will allow to develop special objects and new improvements thanks to volunteer people working in the Association.
