Description of sound paths from HVAC equipment and systems through floors, ductwork, and walls.
Analysis results can be viewed on screen or printed either as a series of detailed tables or as plots on an NC or RC chart with TAP's built-in graphing function.
Evaluating the total effect of sound in an enclosed space requires many complex mathematical equations. Solving those equations manually takes hours of precious design time and is prone to error. TAP streamlines this analysis task with easy-to-use menus and dialog boxes that help the user create pictorial diagrams of sound paths. As path elements are added, moved or deleted, TAP dynamically recalculates the resulting sound power levels; and when multiple paths are involved, TAP not only determines the overall sound level at the receiver, but also how much of that sound each path contributes.
