CYPETHERM LOADS (Building services)

CYPETHERM LOADS is an application conceived to analyse the thermal loads in buildings, and incorporates the Radiant Time Series Method (RTSM), proposed and recommended by the “American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers” (ASHRAE) to calculate the cooling thermal loads, and the procedure to calculate the heating loads; both described in the “Load Calculation Applications Manual (2010)” (Jeffrey D. Spitler. Load Calculation Applications Manual. ASHRAE.ISBN 978-1-933742-72-4, 2010).

CYPETHERM LOADS

CYPETHERM LOADS (located in the Building Services group of the main CYPE program menu) is an easy-to-use, reliable and robust application, which calculates the thermal loads thanks to the different diagrams and its real-time response.

The main features of this application include:

  • Calculation in accordance with the “ANSI/ASHRAE/ACCA Standard 183-2007 (RA 2011), Peak Cooling and Heating Load Calculations in Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings”, which establishes the minimum requirements for any method or procedure used to carry out the peak cooling and heating load calculations.
  • “ASHRAE’s Weather Data Viewer 4.0” with 5,564 stations around the world to import the climate data required for the calculations.
  • Solar radiation data based on ASHRAE’s “Clear-sky Solar Radiation” model.
  • User profile definition, shadows and shadow elements.
  • 24 hour cooling thermal load calculation results for the design day of each month (day 21) and heating load calculation results for each precinct and zone.
  • Real time results graphs, so the results can be seen immediately as well as the repercussions of any changes in the job.

Code implementation and improvements in its application

Concrete code

ACI 318-M (USA), Nch430.Of2008 (Chile), NTE E.060: 2009 (Peru) and NSR-10 (Colombia)

  • ACI 318M-08 (USA)
    Building code Requirements for Structural Concrete.
  • Nch430.Of2008 (Chile)
    Norma Chilena official Nch430.Of2008.
  • NTE E.060: 2009 (Peru)
    Reglamento Nacional de Edificaciones. Norma E.060 Concreto Armado (2009).
  • NSR10 (Colombia)
    Reglamento Colombiano de Construcción Sismo Resistente

These design codes were already implemented in CYPECAD, CYPE 3D and other CYPE programs as of previous versions. Now, with the 2015.b version, the codes have been implemented in “Punching shear verification” and hence, also in the punching shear verification carried out by CYPECAD. This check was implemented in CYPECAD in the previous version (2015.a) and coexists since then with the tangential stress check. More info link

Rolled and welded steel code

IS 800: 2007 (India)

Indian Standard. General construction in steel – Code of practice (Third Revision).

This code was already implemented in CYPECAD, CYPE 3D, Continuous beams and Portal frame generator to design and check rolled and welded steel bars. Now, in the 2015.b version, the code has been implemented in CYPE-Connect and in CYPE 3D for the design and check of steel connections More info link.

Code regarding loads on structures. Seismic loads

P100-1/2013 (Rumania)

Cod de proiectare seismică P100, Partea 1 – P100-1/2013

Implemented in CYPECAD and CYPE 3D.

CIRSOC 103-2008 (Argentina)

Normas Argentinas para Construcción Sismorresistente. Proyecto de Reglamento CIRSOC 103, Parte I: Construcciones en general.

This code was already implemented in CYPECAD and CYPE 3D as of previous versions. Now, with the 2015.b version, CYPECAD has two options to indicate the Fundamental period of the structure (used to calculate the base shear):

  • Based on the code
    This was the only way possible for this code in previous versions.
  • Specified by the user
    Implemented in the 2015.b version for this code, although it was available for other codes as of previous versions.

More information on the Fundamental period of the structure can be found here More info link.

CYPECAD

Code implementation for punching shear verification

The 2015.b version of CYPECAD incorporates the ACI 318M-08 (USA), Nch430.Of2008 (Chile), NTE E.060: 2009 (Peru) and NSR-10 (Colombia) codes to carry out the punching shear verification in accordance with these codes.

More information on this implementation More info link.

Seismic code implementation

The 2015.b version of CYPECAD incorporates the Rumanian seismic code: P100-1/2013 and application improvements of the Argentinian CIRSOC 103-2008 code regarding the calculation of the Fundamental period of the structure.

More information can be found in the section: Code regarding loads on structures. Seismic loads. More info link

CYPECADCYPECAD

CYPE 3D

Implementation of the IS 800: 2007 (India) code for the design and check of steel connections

The 2015.b version includes the Indian rolled and welded steel code (IS 800: 2007) for the design and verification of connections designed using the Joints (I, II, III, IV and V) modules and the “Baseplates” module. This code was already implemented in CYPE 3D (Metal 3D) as of previous versions, but it was not possible to modify the designed connections. Now, using the IS 800:2007 code, the edit, check and design features of CYPE 3D for steel connections and baseplates that were implemented in the previous version (2015.a) can be used. More info link

The Indian rolled and welded steel code “IS 800: 2007” is also implemented in CYPE-Connect.More info link

Generation of the self-weight of bars

CYPE 3D

Since the first version of Metal 3D (CYPE 3D as of the 2014.a version), the self-weight of the sections that are introduced are automatically generated by the program, regardless of the type of material that has been selected: steel, aluminium, timber, or any other user-defined material (except for steel bars defined as ties, for which the self-weight of the section is not taken into account).

As of the 2015.b version, the automatic generation of the self-weight of the sections that have been introduced is optional. A new option has been implemented: Generate self-weight loads of the bars (Load menu). When this option is selected, a dialogue box opens where the self-weight of the bars, selected after accepting the dialogue box, can be activated or deactivated.

CYPE 3D generates the self-weight of all the bars by default. The self-weight of bars defined as ties is still not taken into account, furthermore, the option “Generation of the self-weight of bars” does not allow for bars defined as ties to be selected.

Surface loads

When error messages regarding the introduction of surface loads are displayed, the loadcase to which the load generating the error belongs to is displayed.

Node dimensions

The size of the represented nodes can now be defined (Job > Drawing preferences).

CYPE 3DCYPE 3D

CYPE-ConnectCYPE 3D

Code implementation (IS 800: 2007 – India)

As is the case with CYPE 3D, the 2015.b version includes the Indian rolled and welded steel code (IS 800: 2007) to edit and check connections designed using the joints modules (Joints I, II, III, IV and V) and using the Baseplates module.

CYPECAD MEP

CYPECAD MEP

CYPECAD MEP for Spain

CTE DB-HE 0. Limitación del consumo energético

The code justification of the CTE DB HE 0 for buildings of private or similar residential use has been implemented in the Thermal Study tab of CYPECAD MEP. As occurs with the code justification of DB HE 1 2013 (available as of previous versions), CYPETHERM HE is the analysis motor of CYPECAD MEP (regarding compliance with the HE 0 and HE 1 2013 codes).

 

 

CYPECAD MEP for France

Étude thermique. RT 2012. Simplified design for RT 2012

As of the 2015.b version, the program allows users to carry out a simplified analysis for the RT 2012 code, which optimises the time required to analyse the first phases of the design. A simplified description of the building envelope is used without taking into account the nearby and far away shadows. Elements with similar technical properties (transmittance, orientation…) are grouped as much as possible. Users must carry out a final analysis without considering this simplification.

This simplified analysis was already implemented for the RT 2005 and RT Existant in the 2014.k version.

 

CYPECAD MEP

Étude thermique. Veranda type precincts for RT 2012

As of the 2015.b version, external veranda type precincts (non-residential space enclosed by glass, which is located at the perimeter of the building) can be introduced, so they are taken into account in the analysis with the RT 2012 code.
