Integrated calculation of interior levels in the working places, the transmission loss of the facade and the noise load in the surrounding areas
Efficient definition of embedded and nested sources at building surfaces
Expert System to find the most cost effective noise control concept
More details libraries, calculation, documentation and noise maps in 1/3 octaves
Sophisticated documentation of results leaves nothing to be desired
Industry noise has many well defined areas in SoundPLAN. The Geo-Database describes the sources geometry (shape and location) and other descriptive attributes. The Library hosts most of the acoustically relevant data about sources and materials. The Calculation Core calculates the noise levels and delivers the feed data for the Documentation, the Expert System for Industry Noise and for various Graphics modules. The source description for industrial noise is always the sound power over frequency. Additions can be defined for non-spherical spreading, directivity, tonality and impulse type noise. If the source is not constant over the time period, a time histogram provides needed adjustments. The integrated concept of interior noise calculations, the superb definition of the surrounding building facades and the fast outdoor calculation makes SoundPLAN a unique tool for efficient, accurate and impressive work.
