Stratigraphies design

Carry out acoustic simulation of multi-layered walls. The intuitive interface allows to determine the soundproofing power of simple walls, double layer walls, walls with insulation layers and ceilings with counterceilings, with just a few clicks.

Refer to this video tutorial to find out how intuitive Ekos is!

Progettazione stratigrafie

  • Wall type support: single brick, double brick, double drywall, ceiling
  • Overlay type support: adherent, with frame, etc.
  • Supports up to three different materials layers per wall section
  • Extensive Ekos materials database, sorted by kind (structural, porous, treading-dampening)
  • Extensive laboratory test results (LTR) database, offering a solid base for simulation
  • Supports multiple semi-empiric formulation for R and Ln calculation, for either frequency or unique index
  • Frequency response graphs, highlighting simulation results for both LTR data, and base wall structure
  • Possibility to create user defined materials with specific characteristics and store then in a user-specific database
  • Visual representation of the wall section
  • Automated print reports generation including simulation results

UNI EN 12354 building design

Carry out 12354-1/2/3 compliant building acoustic design, with DPCM 05/12/1997 passive acoustic requirements calculation. Integration with the stratigraphies design module allows for generation of a complete technical report with just one click, drastically reducing time spent to carry out the designing phase.

progettazione acustica e requisiti acustici passivi

  • Verification type definition: airborne or treading noise for adjacent or stacked environments, façade
  • DPCM-based emitter and receiver environment kind definition
  • Wall stratigraphy kind selection, either from LTR database or user-dedicated database including stratigraphies designed using the previous module
  • Single-screen parameter selection (walls, joints, dimensions, openings and small elements in case of façade)
  • Simplified or detailed calculation method
  • Possibility of creating a custom LTR database
  • Possibility of adding custom LTRs for small elements and openings
  • Automated print reports generation
  • Automated final report creation, which will include simulations from both the design and stratigraphies modules, with the possibility to exclude single simulations

DCPM 05/12/1997 building testing

Carry out acoustic testing of buildings, starting from phonometric data from passive acoustic requirements compliant to DCPM 05/12/1997. Thanks to integrated Excel copy & paste functionality, and the possibility to import data from the building design module, the conformity verification lasts but a few moments.

Modulo collaudo acustico requisiti acustici passivi

  • Possibility to define new environment pairs or choose to start from those defined in the building design module
  • Measured data values importing, with Excel copy & paste compatibility
