SoundPLAN essential

SoundPLAN essential 3.0

is the single document application for environmental noise planning of roads, railways and industrial facilities. Create noise contour maps in cities and open environment from basic 3D geometry and some traffic information or sound power data. It was conceived with the occaisional user in mind who may not have in-depth knowledge of acoustics and want results in the smallest amount of time with the maximum amount of professionalism. It is a compact version of SoundPLAN, based on its calculation core and having its power, fast data processing and striking graphics. It is so easy to use, even engineers without special training for noise control will have no trouble using it. And, as it includes SoundPLAN´s noise contour map capabilities, presentations are easy to create and easy to understand. SoundPLAN essential allows standard cases to be processed quickly, efficiently and inexpensively.

The main windows of SoundPLAN essential in an overview

Noise Models for:

  • Road, Railroads, Parking lots
  • Industrial point, line and area sources
  • Noise Protection Walls and Berms
  • Simulates the noise on top of continuously triangulated Digital Ground Model (DGM)

Features Include:

  • Model any size project
  • DXF and GIS import, or digitize on bitmaps
  • Easy presentation of scenario with or without a noise protection barrier
  • Calculations consider the Digital Ground Model
  • Local noise standards provided
  • Easy to use graphical data interface
  • Striking grid noise and contour maps

Result Tables and Graphics:

The emission level calculations and the results of the noise propagation are presented in tabular form in predefined tables. Additional text can be added for map descriptions and you can customize the layout for each object. Plus:

  • Tabular documentation of source properties
  • Documentation of source contribution levels
  • Level tables show the noise level for all floors and time slices
  • Limit contour lines option
