SoundPLAN supports and complies with changes that have been proposed to ISO/TR 17534-3:2015, which relates to acoustics software for the calculation of sound outdoors.
SoundPLAN Professional offers new module (Room Acoustics) with the following features:
The user is now able to calculate a room response and derive Room Acoustical parameters such as reverberation time, speech intelligibility index (STI), early decay time, and many more.
Full support for automatic evaluation of rooms according to ISO 3382:3, E VDI 2569 and DIN 18041.
Auralization (model and simulate the acoustics of a room and assess the impact of any proposed acoustics-related improvements. The user is able to hear how the room sounds).
SoundPLAN 8.0 improvements
New and improved data exchange interfaces. These include KLM-Export and advanced interfaces to Open Street Map, Google Maps and Web Map Services.
The new industrial building has a new object type “Text”. This was missing in the first release. There is also an improved project conversion from older versions <8.0, to convert text inside industrial buildings.
Faster and more efficient indoor calculation (Sound Particle Diffraction).
Distributed computing now supports indoor calculations (Sound Particle Diffraction). All computers in your network can be used for the calculation.
More robust geometrical processing (pre-calculation for indoor calculation)
SoundPLANessential 4.1 enhancements
Advanced interface to Google Earth, with the possibility to directly import aerial photos as a background map and ground elevation.
The noise propagation standard Nord2000 is now included for industrial noise thus enabling consideration of user-specified meteorological conditions.
Seamless interface to d&b audiotechnik sound reinforcement systems. One-click solution to integrate a complete stage setup in your noise model and calculate it according to ISO 9613-2 or Nord2000 under consideration of phase effects.
