SoundPLANnoise - The complete Noise Mapping / Prediction Software - Acoustic Simulation
The modular program package SoundPLANnoise. If you are in daily need of professional noise reports, noise mapping or acoustic simulation, you need a monitoring noise software you can rely on. Engineering offices, state and local authorities, architects, concert promoters or venues, and universities all work with our effective noise software in a wide range of application areas.
Ranging from simple standard investigations to special tasks, SoundPLANnoise offers answers to every conceivable question in the fields of noise immission control, environmental acoustics, and room acoustics. This includes, for example, route planning, development plans, approval procedures, noise action plans, noise mapping, assessing open-air events, or planning open-plan offices.
Here's a special advantage of SoundPLANnoise: The modular structure of our software allows you quickly and easily adapt the program to your individual requirements at any time.
SoundPLANnoise is also intuitive to use. Along with its well thought-out workflow, this enables you to work efficiently - from modelling to the graphical and tabular presentation of the results - so that you can reach your goal as quickly as possible.
Always up to date
Our maintenance contract guarantees that your SoundPLANnoise software is always up to date, so that the calculations you perform are always based on the latest guidelines and standards.
Cover a wide range of applications with the SoundPLANnoise software package
SoundPLANnoise offers you the necessary tools and libraries that you need to execute your projects for all areas of application. Whether it's a noise study for a building development plan, expert noise reports at the workplace or noise remediation: with its powerful and quality-assured calculation kernel, SoundPLANnoise is the professional solution for your tasks.
Whether in buildings or outdoors, whether industrial or traffic noise: with its versatile tools, SoundPLANnoise is the right software for every conceivable area of application.
Creation of noise models and documentation
With SoundPLANnoise, it is easy to create quick noise simulations, a variety of tabular outputs and informative noise maps. It also supports the assessment of different evaluation methods.
Thanks to the modular structure of SoundPLANnoise, you can customize the software to meet your specific requirements. Modules can be added or removed at any time, according to your needs.
No matter which configuration you use to work with SoundPLANnoise, the number of diffractive and reflective objects is always unlimited. You can also take advantage of the unlimited possibilities for creating variants and of the efficient multi-document solution for your projects. While the calculations for a project are running, you can already prepare and document other results graphically.
Flexible use of software licenses
SoundPLANnoise enables you to work in a flexible, modern way: in the office, together with colleagues using a server-based solution, on the way to an appointment or simply at home.
Always up to date
With a maintenance contract for SoundPLANnoise, you are always up to date. Our program is constantly being developed and adapted to the requirements of our customers. In addition, new guidelines and standards are being incorporated into the current version and are available free of charge via updates. For technical and content-related questions, our hotline team is happy to help you quickly, easily and personally by phone or e-mail.
One software for many areas of application
SoundPLANnoise includes everything from modelling, calculations and tabular documentation in various levels of detail to informative plans for road and rail noise, commercial and leisure noise, aircraft noise, and Hallin (sound propagation indoors).
User-friendly analysis and optimization tools
In addition, SoundPLANnoise offers extensive tools - first and foremost among them is the integrated spreadsheet optimized for your problems. Further tools offer, for example, the optimization of noise protection structures, noise remediation, noise allocation, and noise protection concepts for industrial plants as well as various evaluations (such as the number of affected inhabitants) or the best cost-benefit ratio.
Dynamic segmentation in the data model
A special feature of the two calculation modes 'road' and 'rail' is that even if any of the properties is modified in the course of the road or the railway (e.g. change of speed or bridge addition), there is no need to manage different road or railway segments.
Usage of extensive system libraries
As a SoundPLANnoise user, you have access to extensive system libraries for emission spectra, sound attenuation and absorption, which are regularly updated.
SoundPLANnoise supports your personal project presentation with pre-defined layouts, table and graphic templates, which you can adapt to your own standards.
High computing power for effective work
Our high-performance computing core is our guarantee for a high computing power. If the computing power still should not be sufficient, for example in the case of large computing areas, you can simply use SoundPLAN's distributed computing feature: This way, the computing jobs are distributed via automated workflows and then merged again. The size of the computing cluster does not matter. Whether you are using five or five hundred computers: You only need one license for this.
Emissions from roads, railways and car parks are entered or imported via different standardised traffic data sets.
Calculation of point, line and area sources, industrial halls, wind turbines, parking lots, open-air concerts, noise at the workplace (exposure levels).
Sound propagation in the interior according to VDI 3760 and an advanced sound particle model with diffraction to calculate working noise and room acoustics. Calculation of the interior level from the properties of the interior sources.
Calculation of reverberation times and various room acoustic parameters such as speech intelligibility STI, deflection distance or confidence interval according to ISO 3382-3:2012 and E VDI 2569, auralization.
Calculation of any descriptors, such as Leq, maximum level, NAT exceedance frequency, threshold value after NAT, wake-up probability, ANEF (Australian Noise Exposure Forecast). Maximum level statistics for the individual aircraft classes or the sum.
