In order to be able to calculate only partial areas of pipe networks that have been constructed so far, the partial network start is available to you as a substitute for the primary side. In heating and cooling networks you can now specify whether this substitute component should also contain a pump.
The Rooms dialog of the duct network calculation now contains a filter to display rooms according to various criteria. For example, you can display only those rooms that are to be mechanically ventilated or only rooms with supply air terminals. You also have the option of filtering by a specific error message to speed up troubleshooting.
The calculation of the minimum flow rate in the Rooms dialog has been extended to include procedure 2 of EN 16798-1. Procedure 2 determines the volume flow with which the limit value of any pollutant is complied with. Both procedures can be combined. The higher volume flow of both cases is given to the room as the minimum volume flow.
You can freely define the pollutants to be taken into account in the dialog. The pollutant designation and the limit value are saved and can thus be used in other rooms or projects. For the pollutant CO2, limit values of three different standards are stored. The release rate of CO2 can be determined depending on the number of persons and their activity.
With the new printout for rooms from the sound level calculation, you can now prove that the required sound pressure level is maintained in each room. The printout shows the details of the room for the acoustic calculation and all air diffusers in the room with their settings. With the help of this listing, you can quickly identify those diffusers that contribute most to the overall sound level, so that if the required sound pressure level is not met, you have direct starting points where improvements in the system will have the greatest effect.
For the correct design of a flow divider, the condition must be considered when there is no extraction in the ring and the ring is only turbulently flushed by a subsequent extraction. In addition to automatic flushing stations, consumers can also be flushing-relevant if regular use is ensured. You can now define the consideration of a flush-relevant consumer in the component dialog. This influences the result of the check as to whether all upstream flow dividers selected via the VDI data source are flushed turbulently.
In addition to the setting in the component dialog of the consumers, the flushing-relevant consumers can also be displayed in the model from the component dialog of the assigned flow divider.
You can now name your generated tanks directly in the configurator, which will then also be used as its family name. Furthermore, a description of the container is generated as a parameter which makes this information available in the model.
In addition, the calculated volume of the container is now also displayed. This is correctly determined from the information about cover type, geometric dimensions and wall thicknesses. The wall thicknesses are suggested based on a simplified compressive strength calculation and can of course be adjusted manually.
From now on you can decide whether changes in the liNear properties dialog are to be adopted directly when the mouse pointer leaves the dialog area or whether entries have to be explicitly confirmed. The direct acceptance corresponds to the behavior in the Revit properties dialog. To ensure more convenience when editing properties, you can now set the options so that your entries are only accepted when you click the "Apply" button.
The heating load results for each room are now displayed on all structure levels, such as floor levels. In the overview, you can quickly identify anomalies and double-click or use the button to switch directly to the relevant room dialog to make adjustments. In the room dialog you will now also find a button to return to the previous room overview.
