Design and verification of the level of acoustic insulation
Design and verification of the level of acoustic insulation and soundproofing of buildings in accordance with the design method described in the EN 12354 (ISO 15712) codes.
This application is integrated in the Open BIM workflow via IFC standard.
CYPESOUND is an application integrated in the Open BIM workflow. This integration is achieved by importing information files from a previously defined BIM model.
Geometric files can be imported based on IFC4, IFC2x3 and gbXML formats generated by CAD/BIM programs such as IFC Builder, Allplan, Archicad or Revit. This function allows CYPESOUND to incorporate in an automatic manner construction elements and precincts.
The BIM model can be synchronised. Any changes in the synchronised BIM files can be updated in CYPESOUND.
More information on the Open BIM workflow of CYPE can be found on the Open BIM technology in CYPE programs webpage.
CYPESOUND allows users to define, in a personalised manner, the magnitudes of the parameters that reflect the acoustic behaviour of the building and their minimum required values:
CYPESOUND displays an on-screen summary of the results and generates a complete report of the acoustic insulation and soundproofing of the building, detailing the design process performed to carry out the design checks that have been defined previously by users.
For CYPESOUND to be able to carry out all the indicated specifications, users are required to have the “Acoustic insulation in accordance with EN 12354 (ISO 15712)” module permits, which also operates as a module in CYPECAD MEP.
