Which files are generated during a MIKE 1D simulation?

The MIKE 1D engine uses data directly from the MIKE+ database to generate the results, which is particularly different from its predecessor MOUSE for urban water application which generated a MEX-file. 
You can still generate export through Export to m1dx file - see Fig. 1

Below we show the main items of difference between MIKE 1D and the former MOUSE numerical engine.

#01 - Warning and errors
The warnings and errors are reported in a log-file which will have the following name: SimulationIDScenarioID_ErrorLog.html. and it is accessible through the simulation setup tab - see Fig. 2:

#02 - Summary of the simulation
The summary file will have the following name: SimulationIDScenarioID_Summary.html. - see Fig. 3

#03 - Results files
The result file will have the extension .res1d for both the Runoff and the Network simulations, but the Runoff result file will have “RR” added in the name: xxxRR.res1d.
Other result files can also be generated - see Fig 4:

File Type


Runoff result file


RDI output result file


Catchment discharge


HD Network result file

#04 - Log file from the simulation
The information given during the simulation in the simulation dialogue is saved in a .log file: SimulationID.log 

MIKE 1D generates res1D but does not need to generate an export file. Such a file can, however, be generated to execute simulations remotely.
