CYPEFIRE Sprinklers - CYPEFIRE Hydraulic Systems

Change of name of the program

As of the 2019.h version, “CYPEFIRE Sprinklers” becomes “CYPEFIRE Hydraulic Systems” due to the increase of the program’s abilities since the previous update.

The hydraulic analysis of fire hose reels and their checks were included in the 2019.g version, regardless of the existence of sprinklers in the installation.

 

Implementation of the UNE 12845:2016 code

 

As of the new 2019.h version, “CYPEFIRE Hydraulic Systems” includes the EN 12845:2016 code.

 

This code is activated in the "General Options" panel by selecting the European flag, in the same way as it is done with the other implemented codes "NFPA 13" and "CP 52: 2004 Singapore Standard”.

 

As with the other two regulations, the EN 12845:2016 code can be imported and the necessary modifications be carried out using the "Specific requirements for each space" tool on each type of risk and so adjust the checks if necessary.

 

Automatic generation of the sprinkler system

In the 2019.h version of "CYPEFIRE Hydraulic Systems", a tool has been implemented that allows users to introduce sprinkler systems quickly and easily. This tool (Automatic generation) can be found in the "Hydraulic analysis" section of the toolbar.

 

To use it, some general parameters have to be defined that will allow the program to carry out the distribution:


  • Type of network: Grid or Manifold with branches

  • Type of sprinkler to use

  • Manifold and branch diameters

  • Distances between sprinklers

Once the data of the panel has been defined, users only have to select the spaces in which the sprinkler system is to be generated automatically.

Increased compatibility of the air conditioning systems defined in the building

As of the 2019.h version of CYPETHERM programs with the EnergyPlusTManalysis engine (CYPETHERM EPlus and CYPETHERM RECS Plus), users can define more than one water-cooled water chiller system in the same building. It is also possible to define several water air conditioning systems in the building if, additionally, water-cooled systems have been defined for the chiller.

Furthermore, as of the 2019.h version, users can define any number of production equipment within the water air conditioning and condensation systems. In previous versions, there was a maximum limit of 10 units.

 

Margin of setpoint temperatures

 

 

Users can define the temperature margin to calculate the out of setpoint hours. This can be done in the "Design options" panel (Analysis tab > Design options button or Analysis button).

 

 

In the simulation, the hours in which the air temperature of the building spaces lies outside the heating or cooling setpoint temperature range are counted as hours out of setpoint, with a margin higher than the indicated values. In previous versions, this margin was fixed and with a value of 0.2 ºC.

CYPE complements for Revit

Compatibility of “Revit® 2020” with CYPE programs

As of the 2019.h version, the CYPE "plugin" for Revit, "Open BIM complement for Revit" and "Bill of quantities of Revit models", are compatible with the 2020 version of Revit.

 

General improvements

Multiple editing of elements in lists

As of the 2019.h version, a new "Assign" tool has been developed to edit multiple elements and is available in dialogue boxes in which lists appear (for example lists of installation elements) in some applications (Thermal, Fire safety...).

 

This new tool allows users to quickly and easily assign the defined properties of an element to the rest of the elements in the list. It can be especially useful for lists with a significant number of elements.

 

The tool helps users, for example, to check spaces that have been imported from the BIM model in a more agile manner, since there are usually different types of spaces that share the same properties.

 

The "Assign" tool will be incorporated in other CYPE applications in upcoming versions.
