SoundPLANessential - Compact Noise Mapping / Prediction Software Solution - Acoustic Simulation
With SoundPLANessential,we offer you a compact software solution for noise simulation or acoustic simulation in the context of smaller projects. If you only occasionally need to take noise-related questions into account, this software, as the quintessence of its 'big brother' SoundPLANnoise, is the ideal program for you.
Easy to operate
SoundPLANessential is characterized by a simple and intuitive user interface. The program is optimized for standard noise simulation cases and can be used efficiently after only a short period of familiarization.
SoundPLANessential is the simple, compact solution for your requirements.
Whether you are dealing with noise protection surveys for industrial plants, development plans or traffic facilities: The intuitively operated interface allows you to quickly familiarize yourself with SoundPLANessential and provides you with exactly the options you need for standard noise reports.
The powerful, original SoundPLAN calculation kernel ensures lightning-fast calculations.
SoundPLANessential has no limitation when it comes to the number of sound sources, immission points and obstacles. You can also use the geometry import and the connection to Google Maps to work on your projects efficiently. The large number of emission spectra provided makes it easy to define industrial sources.
To enable you to benefit quickly from minor improvements and changes, we provide you with free online updates for each minor release.
Clear documentation is important for standard noise projects as well. With the informative, standardised table and graphic outputs, you can present and document your results professionally and clearly in no time at all.
The geometry is either digitized on the screen on the basis of a bitmap or imported if digital data is available. In addition, an interface to Google Maps is available to you.
The sound sources (roads, railways, parking lots and point, line and area sound sources) and the objects that influence the sound propagation path (e.g. buildings, noise barriers or ground properties) are entered in the site map and equipped with acoustical properties. The data model is completed with receivers for a single point calculation or the calculation area for two-dimensional contour maps. All objects can be displayed in the front view and in the 3D Graphics, where they can also be checked for a coherent model.
SoundPLANessential allows you to calculate noise emissions from roads, railways, industrial sources and parking lots. The extensive emission library already provides you with a large selection of spectra, to which you can add your own spectra at any time.
With the quality-tested original SoundPLAN calculation kernel, compliant calculations of road, rail or industrial noise are performed quickly and efficiently.
The emission parameters of the different sound sources and the results including the partial levels and dispersion parameters are documented in tables in a clear and understandable way, which you can easily include in your reports.
The results of individual places of immission are cartographically edited as small tables together with the model data. From the results of the grid noise map calculation, isophones can be displayed with colour scales that can be freely defined for each time range. Boundary isophones can be highlighted.
The additional module 'BauAkustik' ('Building Acoustics') is a very helpful tool when it comes to noise remediation or protective measures against external noise when planning buildings. It includes facade optimization for any number of facades and components, as well as the use of the supplied sound insulation library.
