New monitoring option in NoiseAtWork V5.1 for dynamic mapping

Mar 27, 2018

With the new version 5 of NoiseAtWork the applicability has increased substantially. Not only noise, but any measured indicator can now be mapped as interpolated contours within minutes. For instance Temperature in ˚C, Humidity in % and Gas concentration in ppm. To demonstrate how versatile NoiseAtWork is we decided to add a simple option in V5.1 for monitoring a CSV file with measurement values. When the file changes NoiseAtWork will automatically import it again and show the new interpolated contours. As a result you get a dynamic map. See the video

Valley correction for wind turbine noise

Mar 22, 2018

The IOA GPG TO ETSU-R-97 recommends that a correction of +3 dB (or +1.5 dB if using G=0.0)  should be added to the calculated noise level of a wind turbine for propagation “across a valley”. The following criterion of application is recommended: hm ≥ 1.5 x (abs (hs – hr) /2). In this criterion hm is the mean height above the ground of the direct line of sight from the receiver to the source (as defined in ISO 9613-2, figure 3).

Although the formula is simple enough, the criterion when to apply the valley correction is not. Because there is no exact and unambiguous definition of ‘propagation across a valley’, the consultant will have to decide ‘manually’ in which situation a valley correction is applicable.

When it is decided that a valley correction is needed, determining the mean height hm manually can be time consuming. As the calculation of hm is part of the ISO 9613 calculation method, the iNoise Free software can be helpful. In iNoise the calculated mean height above the digital terrain model for any chosen receiver – wind turbine combination can be displayed.

NoiseAtWork V5.10 has been released!

Feb 1, 2018

NoiseAtWork is by far the easiest tool available on the market today for creating interpolated contour maps based on any type of measurement, such as Noise in dB(A), Temperature in ˚C, Humidity in % or Gas concentration in ppm. Simply read in any CAD, PDF or scanned image map and enter your data points by clicking on the map at the locations where you have done your measurements. You will be amazed how simple it is!

See https://software.dgmr.nl/videos/NAW-in-2-minutes.mp4. New options in the V5.1 release include an integrated demo mode and support of PDF as background drawing next to CAD (DXF/DWG) and image files (BMP/JPG). Click here to download V5.1.

iNoise 2018 has been released!

Dec 12, 2017

The new iNoise 2018 release includes several new powerful features such as a quick and easy calibration option for bitmaps and a very convenient option to convert sound pressure (Lp) to sound power (Lw) for point, line and moving sources. Also the sound power database has been extended with CNOSSOS-EU based sound power levels for light, medium and heavy vehicles driving 50, 80 or 100 km/hr. Click here to register your Free license for 2018.

New: Calibrate option for using bitmaps as background maps

The new calibrate option in iNoise 2018 makes calibration of bitmaps extremely easy. With the iNoise menu option ‘View | Background Maps’ you can add multiple GIS, CAD and Image (bitmap) files as Background map layers underneath your model. iNoise automatically recognises georeferenced image files that include a separate World file. Such georeferenced image files can be purchased or can be created with GIS software. However calibrating an image file yourself is not difficult at all. With the new intuitive Calibrate option in iNoise 2018 you can do this within seconds. Learn how to, simply by watching instruction video 6 on our website: https://dgmrsoftware.com/products/inoise/gallery/

New: Lp to Lw option to convert sound pressure (Lp) to sound power (Lw)

With the new Lp to Lw option in iNoise 2018 for Point, Line and Moving Sources the user can now quickly determine the sound power level (Lw) of the source based on a measured sound pressure  level at a certain distance.

New: SourceDB option

SourceDB is a separate software that enables storing, searching and sorting your own sound power data, as an extension of the European IMAGINE database. SourceDB supports 1/3 octaves, a script language to define parameters and formulas to calculate the Lw and adding pictures to the sources. A sound power level in SourceDB can be easily copied and pasted in a source of an iNoise model.

New: CNOSSOS-EU sound power levels for road traffic noise

The default sound power catalogues ‘SourcePower_Octave.cat’ and ‘SourcePower_Terts.cat’ now include sound power levels for light, medium and heavy vehicles driving 50, 80 or 100 km/hr. The sound powers are taken from the CNOSSOS-EU method. In combination with the moving source item this makes it more convenient to calculate road traffic noise according to the ISO 9613 propagation.

July 24th till July 26th DGMR Software exhibited at ICSV24 As iNoise is the new quality assured ‘kid on the block’ there was a broad amount of interest. We were very pleased with the number of new registrations and all the positive remarks, especially from users of competitive software. We also presented our paper on quality assured software implementation of ISO 9613 in iNoise. The new QA standard ISO/TR 17534-3 strongly reduces the possibilities of different interpretations of ISO 9613. Without the quality recommendations, differences can be up to 16 dB! With the recommendations, the differences are within 0.1 dB.

Changes in V4.11

Solved issues

  • Loading contour definitions from a file did not correctly force the contours to be recalculated which meant that contours displayed were according to the old definition.
  • License activation – activating a license when a previous time limited had expired would not always work and displayed incorrectly in the information screen. This was often the case with temporary test/demo licenses.
  • License deactivation – deactivating licenses would also attempt to deactivate expired licenses which generated error messages

DGMR Software booth at AIHce

May 23 till May 25 DGMR Software exhibited at AIHce. For us it was the first time. For AIHce it was also the first time to receive an exhibitor from The Netherlands! It was a very successful event. Our booth attracted a lot of attention and we made contact with many new potential users of our software. They all saw the benefit of the NoiseAtWork and MapAtWork software when creating interpolated maps based on measurements. What we heard most is that by using our software there is no need any more to outsource the creation of measurement maps to a CAD department because now the industrial hygienist can do it herself/himself with just a couple of clicks. This saves time and money. So it might very well be that we will exhibit next year also at AIHce in Seattle.
