Version SPM9613 - Community Noise Prediction Software, Version 2


Born from our years of estimating and predicting noise from industrial noise sources, Power Acoustics, Inc. has developed and optimized a low-cost computer program for analyzing community noise and sound propagation emitted from a variety of noise sources. The engineering software is based on the ISO 9613 parts 1 and 2 standards. SPM9613 provides calculations at specific field points (listeners) and predictions of A- and C-weighted sound level contours as well. We sell this software as a low cost alternative to more expensive and difficult to use computer programs.

The original release of our community noise sound propagation model, SPM9613™ was in January 1999. Version 2 was released in February 2002. The software has a Windows based user interface and enables users to perform multi-source and distributed source predictions with barriers and reflective surfaces. Because the software is developed by a company that is also an end user, it is extremely flexible and easy to use.
