The Actimass air system plug-in enables IESVE users to model ventilation air passing through structural hollowcore, enabling the comfort and energy benefits associated with the Actimass system.
The Actimass air system plug-in part of the Performance Components Library within the IESVE software. 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 IESVE, 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.
