CYPEPLUMBING Water systems

CYPEPLUMBING Water Systems is a program created to assist project designers with the design and analysis of potable water supply installations. It is integrated in the Open BIM workflow using the IFC standard.



The program can perform a partial or complete design of the installations of any type of building. It contains predefined equipment catalogues and allows for user catalogues to be introduced and configured.



It generates floor drawings, results and quantity reports for pipes and equipment that can be exported to FIEBDC-3 format.



CYPEPLUMBING Water Systems carries out the hydraulic analysis using “Darcy and Weisbach” equations and calculates the friction factor using the Colebrook and White formula. The program analyses the installation assembly and calculates gross and simultaneous quantities of flow, where users can define the simultaneity factor.



In its first version, the program includes predefined configurations to comply with the following codes: CTE DB HS 4 (Spain), NF DTU 60.11 (France), DR n.º 23/95 (RGSPPDADAR – Portugal). Design checks can also be configured to comply with other standard limits or limits imposed by users.

CYPELEC Networks



Quick editing in the Checks panel


Once the load flow analysis has been completed, the “Checks” button , contained in the “Load flow” block of the top toolbar, provides users with a list of the elements that fail in the installation.



A column has been added to this Checks panel, for each element, where users can open and edit the element in question and solve the situation that causes the element to fail in a quick and accessible manner.



Once the element is edited using this method, its row will be displayed in red and the panel will then indicated that a new analysis has to be launched to update the results.



CYPELEC Networks. Common protection for several cables. Click to enlarge the image

Common protection for several cables

If a common circuit breaker protection is provided for several lines (as shown in the figure), in the panel corresponding to the protection, the checks are displayed with all the cables that are further down the line (in the example, the checks of the common protection are also listed with the three cables that follow it).



















Integration of TOP CABLE in the manufacturer elements

The following TOP CABLE families have been added to the manufacturer cable library:

  • TOXFREE ZH RZ1-K (AS)
  • TOXFREE ZH ES05Z1-K and H07Z1-K (AS)
  • TOPFLEX V-K H05V-K and H07V-K
  • POWERFLEX RV-K

This way, more options are available when having to select the conductor for the installations. Even thought the complete catalogue is not available, the families provided by TOP CABLE cover the needs of their clients in a high percentage of the installations. Nonetheless, work is being carried out to increase this library and offer our users a greater variety of conductors.

Manufacturer cables are selected using the “Manufacturer cable” option in the “Type of conductor” of the “Description” of the line. The “Cable” panel offers users the possibility to select amongst the families that are imported to the library. The program will show a list of filtered elements so that only those that are compatible with the polarity and type of selected conductor are displayed, this way selection errors are avoided.

CYPESOUND. Outdoor airborne noise on façades. Click to enlarge the image



Spectrum adaptation term

As has been implemented in AcoubatBIM by CYPE, as of the 2018.f version of CYPESOUND, users can tell the program to add the spectrum adaptation term C or Ctr (depending on the predominant type of noise) to the acoustic insulation index against outdoor airborne noise.











Outdoor airborne noise on façades

As has been implemented in AcoubatBIM by CYPE, as of the 2018.f version of CYPESOUND and CYPESOUND NRA (France), users can force the limit value of the insulation against outdoor noise of a specific façade. If this option is selected, the program will check the level of insulation obtained for the façade with this new value instead of that indicated in the general parameters of the application.

Furthermore, in CYPESOUND NRA (France), an assistant is included to determine this limit based on “l’arrêté du 30 mai 1996 modifié en juillet 2013”.

AcoubatBIM by CYPE. Update of the calculation method of the lateral transmissions. Click to enlarge the image




Update of the calculation method of the lateral transmissions

A new analysis system of the lateral transmissions has been implemented so now the joints between two elements in an “L” or “I” connection are taken into account. Furthermore, the results contain a greater amount of information on the elements that intervene in the connection, the geometric analysis and formulas used for the analysis of the paths sound must travel along as well as for the differences in the level of velocity in the connection (Dv,ij) that are reached. These latter values are obtained based on the method provided in “Annex E” of the “EN 12354-1:2016” code (Building acoustics. Estimation of the acoustic performance of buildings from the performance of elements. Part 1: Airborne sound insulation between rooms).

AcoubatBIM by CYPE. Analysis of sound transmission via corridors or halls. Click to enlarge the image







Analysis of sound transmission via corridors or halls



The difference of the normalised level for the acoustic transmission of indirect airborne noise via halls or corridors, Dn,s, has been implemented in the analysis. To do so, the method described in “section 2.1” of “Annex F” of the EN 12354-1 code has been used.



To activate this analysis, users must select, in the general parameters of the project, the option “Calculate the indirect airborne noise transmission across this space” for each type of corridor or hall.



When a project is linked to a BIM model containing geometric information, the project automatically detects the orientation and relative distance between doors with the aim to determine the value of the parameter Cdoorposition, which is required when using the formula of the code.



In the results table of the “Analysis” tab, this new analysis will appear in the receptor space with a different icon and the reference of the intermediate space. When opened, the analysis of the insulation between the emitter and intermediate spaces is displayed as well as that of the intermediate and receptor spaces.

Airborne noise and impact noise insulation between spaces with doors or windows

Now users can indicate a limit value for airborne noise or impact noise insulation between spaces when there are openings between them, different to the value provided for when there are no openings.















AcoubatBIM by CYPE. Reverberation times depending on volume. Click to enlarge the image

Reverberation times depending on volume

A new option has been included in the configuration of types of spaces that allows users to indicate different reverberation time limits depending on the volume of the space.

Reverberation time and equivalent acoustic absorption area with and without furniture

Now users can calculate the reverberation time and equivalent absorption area of a space taking into account the furniture included in it, or not taking it into account or with both options.

Reverberation time and equivalent acoustic absorption area depending on volume

As occurs in CYPESOUND, as of the 2018.f version, a new formula has been added to limit the reverberation tine and equivalent acoustic absorption area of a space depending on its volume.

Minimum reverberation time

As of the 2018.f version, it is possible to indicate a minimum reverberation time limit in the configuration of the types of spaces.





AcoubatBIM by CYPE. Outdoor airborne noise on façades. Click to enlarge the image

Outdoor airborne noise on façades



As has been implemented in CYPESOUND and CYPESOUND NRA, now, in AcoubatBIM by CYPE, users can force the outdoor airborne noise limit value of a façade of the project. If this option is selected, the program will compare the level of insulation that was obtained for the façade with this new value instead of that indicated in the general parameters of the application.



Furthermore, if the French NRA code is used (also implemented in this version in AcoubatBIM by CYPE), an assistant to determine this limit based on “Larrêté du 30 mai 1996 modifié en juillet 2013”.

As of the 2018.f version, AcoubatBIM by CYPE allows users to import the configuration of the acoustic limits covered in D.P.C.M. 5 December 1997 (Determinazione dei requisiti acustici passive degli edifici). The types of spaces that can be selected, with acoustic requirements, are the following:

  • Categoria A: edifici adibiti a residenza o assimilabili
  • Categoria B: edifici adibiti ad uffici e assimilabili
  • Categoria C: edifici adibiti ad alberghi, pensioni ed attività assimilabili
  • Categoria D: edifici adibiti ad ospedali, cliniche, case di cura e assimilabili
  • Categoria E: edifici adibiti ad attività scolastiche a tutti I livelli e assimilabili
  • Categoria F: edifici adibiti ad attività ricreative o di culto o assimilabili
  • Categoria G: edifici adibiti ad attività commerciali o assimilabili


CYPEFIRE Design

Program installation languages

In previous versions, CYPEFIRE Design could only be installed in French. As of the 2018.f version, it can also be installed in English, Portuguese and Italian. Please recall that CYPEFIRE Design can only be downloaded from the BIMserver.center platform.

With the implementation of the new features of this version, CYPEFIRE Design can be used by any user to resolve his/her fire safety projects, and apply the limits and checks to be carried out.

New types of ERP projects: N, O, P and R

CYPEFIRE Design. New types of ERP projects: N, O, P and R. Click to enlarge the image

Added to the types of projects of the Moroccan code “Règlement de sécurité contre les risques d’incendie et de panique dans les constructions” are the following types of projects for “Établissements recevant du public (ERP)”:

  • Restaurants et débits de boissons (Type N).
  • Hôtels et pensions de famille (Type O).
  • Salles de danse et salles de jeux (Type P).
  • Établissements d’éveil, d’enseignement, de formation, centres de loisirs sans hébergement (Type R).




CYPEFIRE Design. Risk zones. Click to enlarge the image

Risk zones



In the previous version (2018.e), checks of the “Risk zones” were added in the “Checks” section of the “General options” panel. The data that could be defined in the risk zone checks panel was their description and the fire resistance of the structure.



As of the 2018.f version, risk zones can have requirements as is already done for fire zones. Now, for risk zones, users can define the type of equipment that is necessary, the conditions when it is required and a description of the code with its title and description.









Space occupancy

One of the most important new features of the 2018.f version of CYPEFIRE Design is the possibility to define occupancy densities in the different space types.

In the “General adjustments” section of the “General options” panel, a button has been added that allows users to access the “Space occupancy” panel. Here, different types of occupancies for the spaces can easily be created with the necessary density requirements. Once these types have been created, the type of occupancy to be applied can be assigned to each type of space.

By defining the occupancy of the spaces, a greater level of detail can be reach in the design and analysis of the evacuation paths.

Evacuation routes

CYPEFIRE Design. Evacuation routes. Click to enlarge the image

Bearing in mind that in the 2018.f version it is possible to define the occupancy of spaces, this version also includes a check of the width of the evacuation routes depending on the occupancy that can use it.

To carry out this check, users must define the minimum width of the evacuation route depending on the maximum occupancy it can receive. To do so, the tool: “Evacuation routes” has been implemented in the “Checks” section of the “General options” panel. In this dialogue box, users can define the:

  • Reference
  • Description
  • Width check
    If this check is activated, it is possible to define in a table, the minimum width of the evacuation route depending on the maximum occupancy. In the image, we can see how the evacuation route has a minimum width of 0.90 m for an occupancy of up to 100 people and a minimum width of 1.40 m for an occupancy of up to 300 people.

Evacuation origin and evacuation path

In the “Evacuation” section of the menu (top toolbar menu of the screen), the option: “Evacuation origins” has been added and the icon and introduction mode of the “Evacuation paths” have been modified.

  • Evacuation origins
    This option has been designed so users can assign the occupancy of the spaces to the evacuation paths without having to introduce the routes.

    It works in the same way as it did before “Evacuation paths”, i.e. by first selecting the space to be evacuated and then the route to which the occupancy is to be assigned.
  • Evacuation paths
    The tool has the same function as it did in previous versions, which is to assign the checks of an evacuation path to any evacuation route, only now to introduce it, users must only indicate the start on the evacuation path.

CYPEFIRE Sprinklers

CYPEFIRE Sprinklers. Vertical pipes. Click to enlarge the image

CYPEFIRE Sprinklers. Vertical pipes. Click to enlarge the image

Vertical pipes

In the 2017.k version, the possibility was implemented to introduce risers to connect installations of different floor plans.


Now, in the 2018.f version, vertical spans can be introduced and edited within the same floor plan, with the purpose to avoid horizontal pipes colliding against other elements such as beams, air conditioning ducts, etc.


To do so, the option: “Vertical pipe” has been implemented. In the “Pipes” section of the top toolbar, the name of the option: “Riser” has been changed. Now, it is called “Vertical” and it contains “Risers” and the new option “Vertical pipe”.


To introduce vertical pipes, users must indicate the reference, pipes catalogue to use and the diameter. Then, the point of a horizontal pipe as of which the vertical pipe will begin must be selected. If two vertical pipes are introduced, it is possible to change the elevation of the horizontal span lying between the two vertical pipes.
