BA Assistant Building Acoustics App
The Building Acoustics Assistant is the smartphone application created for sound insulation measurements with Svantek sound level meters.
The Building Acoustics smartphone application guides the user through the sound insulation measurement procedure in accordance with ISO 16283. The application can also manage two sound level meters, making the measurement procedures two times faster!
Calculated sound insulation results are displayed in the Assistant app in the form of tables, plots and spectrum views. The application also provides ISO 16283 reporting with a single click! The application saves the measurement results as a project containing measurements from the source and receiving rooms for different sound source positions. The project can be downloaded to the SvanPC++ Building Acoustic Software for post-processing purposes.
The Assistant App guides users through the building acoustics measurement procedures, including measurement such as Airborne, Facade, tapping machine, rubber ball, STIPA and ambient noise. The app can enrich the measurements projects by adding photos and descriptions to the measurement report.
The Bluetooth interface in the Building Acoustics Assistant App makes it possible to manage two simultaneous connections with two sound level meters. The solution is very convenient whenever sound level meters are located in separate rooms – simultaneously in the source and receiving rooms. The application supports the user by automatically configuring the sound level meters’ settings for dual point measurements. For the user’s convenience, the app can also import previous measurements for calculations, e.g. background noise and reverberation time.
The app provides printable sound insulation reports in the form of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. The reports are created directly in the app so they can be viewed or emailed at any time. The report contains the apparent sound reduction index in a form of a table of results and a curves plot.
Example Data From Svantek BA Assistant App – how we do our calculations!
BA Assistant application supports Svantek sound level meters equipped with the Bluetooth interface, e.g. SVAN 977 and SVAN 979. The Building Acoustics smartphone application guides the user through the sound insulation measurement procedure in accordance with ISO 16283. Sound insulation results are presented on the display and in the form of a report compliant with the ISO requirements. The application can be used with SP 95 Impact Ball for sound insulation testing in light weight structures. A project containing measurements from the source and receiving rooms for different sound source positions is created during the measurement. The project is saved in the memory of the sound meter along with the measurement files. The user interface allows to preview results in the form of time-history plots as well as numerical values. The application enables to add PHOTOS and VOICE comments to the measurement projects.
