The Actimass air system plug-in is the latest edition to the Performance Components Library within the Virtual Environment, and is available as part of the VE 2015 release. Performance components help architects and engineers deliver low maintenance, energy efficient designs within the built environment. Commercially available structural hollowcores can be imported into the Virtual Environment, providing the geometry and thermal data and a whole host of design and simulation outputs.
Using the VE Navigator for Actimass air system plug-in, components are imported to rooms and the pre configured Actimass air system is automatically created in ApacheHVAC within the assigned rooms. Designs can then be refined to produce optimised energy efficient designs.
The plug-in has a library of different depth and designs of structural hollowcores, and enables these to be simply applied to rooms, zones or buildings.
Once applied, feasibility can be assessed, ventilation strategies designed and compliance evaluated though a series of powerful control panels.
Actimass can assess feasibility on your projects and work with you from project start to finish. Alternately, users can license the Actimass air system plug-in for specific projects. To discuss design software options and project support please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
