CYPETHERM Improvements

CYPETHERM Improvements

 

 

CYPETHERM Improvements is a tool for energy audits and analysis of improvement measures in buildings.

The graphics interface of CYPETHERM Improvements is similar to the other CYPETHERM programs. It has a tree-structure on the left of the screen where users can define:

  • The initial situation of the building (which describes its energy performance at its initial situation)
  • Improvement measures of the building, which include the energy performance that is obtained having applied them, with its description and associated expenses.

The initial situation of the building and improvement measures can be imported from files in XML format that are generated by CYPETHERM energy simulation programs that use EnergyPlusTM (CYPETHERM HE Plus, CYPETHERM RECS Plus and CYPETHERM EPlus) and with CYPETHERM C.E. for Italy and CYPETHERM REH for Portugal.

By importing XML files, the great potential of CYPETHERM improvements can be developed, i.e. as a complement of the CYPETHERM energy simulation programs of CYPE.

More information can be found in the CYPETHERM Improvements webpage.

CYPEPLUMBING Sanitary Systems

CYPEPLUMBING Sanitary Systems is a program created to help project designers with the design and analysis of foul water and rainwater evacuation systems. It is integrated in the Open BIM workflow using the IFC standard.

The program allows for a part or all of the installations to be designed of any type of building, and the different networks (foul, rain, mixed, grey and black water) can be organised in layers and managed in 2D or 3D. The program contains material catalogues which can be completely configured, and generates floor plans, drainpipe diagrams, result and check reports, and quantity reports that can be exported to FIEBDC-3.

CYPEPLUMBING Sanitary Systems allows users to design the installations using tables or by applying a hydraulic analysis using several formulas (Manning, Wyly-Eaton, Dawson and Hunter). An automatic design of the installation can be carried out, optimising the space required by the pipe in the free height of the floor and the evacuation volumes.

The program includes predefined code-complying configurations. It is also possible to configure design checks to ensure code and personal technical limits are met.

More information can be found in the CYPEPLUMBING Sanitary Systems webpage.

The program carries out the necessary hydraulic calculations and checks to ensure the requirements of the NFPA®13 (National Fire Protection Association) code are met. These include:

  • Hydraulic design of any type of any type of network
  • Flow and minimum pressure in the sprinklers
  • Distribution of the sprinklers

    • Maximum allowable distance between sprinklers
    • Maximum distance between the sprinklers and the wall
  • Design of the deposit
  • Design of the fire hose reels

 

 

CYPEFIRE Sprinklers automatically generates all the technical documents and drawings that are required to justify the requirements of the NFPA®13 code: Analysis of the nodes, Analysis of the pipes and Installation drawings.

 

CYPEFIRE Sprinklers is an application that is integrated in the Open BIM workflow. This integration is achieved by importing information files of a previously defined BIM model.

  • Imports geometric models included in the spaces using IFC4 format files that have been generated by CAD/BIM programs such as IFC Builder, Allplan, Archicad or Revit.
  • Exports, in an IFC file, the information of all the sprinkler system installations so they can be introduced in other programs that work in the Open BIM workflow.

 

More information on this new CYPE program can be found on the CYPEFIRE Sprinklers webpage.

  • Acoustic insulation for internal airborne and impact noise for each pair of type of precincts.

  • Acoustic insulation for external airborne noise.

  • Sound immission caused by building equipment.

  • Reverberation times and minimum sound absorption areas.

AcoubatBIM by CYPE

 

AcoubatBIM by CYPE is a tool developed by CYPE and the CSTB (Scientific and Technical Centre for Building) with the aim to help users study the insulation and acoustic conditioning of buildings. It calculates the indices that evaluate the insulation of airborne sound (indoor and outdoor), impact sound insulation and the reverberation level in indoor spaces, in accordance with the procedure contained in the EN 12354 (ISO 15712) codes.

 

This application is integrated in the Open BIM workflow using the IFC standard.

 

AcoubatBIM analyses the following parameters to determine the grade of acoustic insulation and conditioning of buildings:

 

  • Acoustic insulation for indoor airborne and impact sound for each pair of space types.


  • Acoustic insulation for outdoor airborne sound.


  • Reverberation times and minimum sound absorption areas.
