MagiCAD Ventilation Ventilation calculations

Ventilation calculations

Integrated ventilation calculations enable evaluation of system performance

• Comprehensive calculations for ventilation systems
• Calculation reports with possibility to adjust duct size and dampers

When a ventilation system has been partly or fully modelled, you can easily use the integrated and localised calculation functions in MagiCAD to evaluate system performance.

MagiCAD includes the following calculations for ventilation systems:
• Ventilation sizing and balancing
• Pressure drop
• Extended flow analysis
• Variable air volume (VAV) system sizing and balancing
• Sound calculation
• Space sound calculation

There are several additional definitions that enable you to adjust the calculations for each specific situation. Select whether to calculate to minimum pressure, fan pressure or a given pressure. Run simulation calculations of actual flow distribution. Adjustment values, pressure drop, sound and flow data are all available for evaluation. The software indicates during calculation if set design criteria is not met by the current system.

When a calculation has been performed, you can view a complete calculation report, perform resizing and make adjustments directly from the report. Calculation reports can be printed with matching node numbers and documentation of all the design criteria.
