Import outdoor sound sources from the BIM model

Implemented in the 2018.g version of CYPESOUND was the functionality of reading and interpreting the indoor sound sources defined in an IFC file included in the BIM model. The same task has now been carried out for outdoor equipment such as the outdoor units of VRF, Multi-split and 1x1 Split systems. These devices can be introduced in the BIM model using the CYPETHERM HVAC air-conditioning installations design program.

During the import process, the application automatically calculates the values of the parameters r (distance between the source and the closest façade of each affected area) and D (directivity factor -Q- of the machine) corresponding to each equipment set, which depend on the position of the source and geometry of the building.
