AFMG SoundFlow Released!

SoundFlow Released! With growing demand for improved sound insulation and energy efficiency, multi-layered construction utilizing modern materials has become increasingly critical in building physics and acoustical design.

With SoundFlow, models of these structures can be quickly and intuitively created to instantly deliver accurate and precise predictions of absorption, reflection and transmission.

» Details

Sound Absorption and Transmission Loss Calculator

AFMG SoundFlow provides the following set of important features:

  • Easy entry of layers, by means of their thickness and their acoustic material.
  • Common acoustic quantities such as ALPHAw, NRC, Rw and STC figures.
  • Supports absorption coefficient, reflection coefficient and transmission loss.
  • Display and overlay functions for comparison of results at different frequencies, different angles or of multiple structures.
  • Save absorption coefficients directly as EASE wall materials (MAT).
  • Full support for US Customary units, such as fractional inch.

EASE Evac Now Available!

EASE Evac Now Available! While development and discussion of NFPA 72 continues on the American continent, in Europe the same is true for EN / IEC 60849.

EASE Evac provides an intuitive tool for designing acoustic mass notification concepts in a room, hall or building complex. The 3D simulation software quickly calculates the distribution of sound pressure levels, the signal-to-noise ratio and - most importantly - speech intelligibility, such as STI and CIS.

Fast Design of Acoustic Evacuation Systems

EASE Evac features the following functions among many:

  • Easy room entry by importing image, Google Sketchup, AutoCAD DXF files.
  • Ceiling- and wall-mounted sound sources.
  • Direct SPL, Total SPL, SNR, STI, CIS, ALCons.
  • Room acoustic calculations using given RT or acoustic surface materials.
  • Calculation engine based on EASE 4.3 and GLL loudspeaker data.
  • Supported by leading companies from pro-audio and life safety.
