SIDLAB - Software Suite for Muffler and Silencer Design

SIDLAB Suite is a combination of software and hardware solutions for the analysis and measurement of sound generation and propagation inside duct networks. This can be applied to Intake and Exhaust systems, Power generation, Oil & Gas pipe networks and HVAC systems. It offers a complete characterization of the system, including both simulation and validation measurements. SIDLAB Acoustics and SIDLAB Flow design the system to have a good acoustic performance keeping the pressure drop low enough. The results are then validated using SIDLAB Measurement or SIDLAB Acquisition in the SIDLAB Rig.

SIDLAB Optimization and Parameterization tools offer larger possibilities for an efficient design. SIDLAB calculations are done in MATLAB, and the source code is offered. This is a good advantage for advanced users to perform their custom analysis. Calculation time is typically a few seconds on a normal PC. Post-processing within SIDLAB is simple and straightforward, with the possibility to save the results in different formats. SIDLAB compiles a long experience and know-how of accurate modeling for all types of duct acoustic applications in research, teaching and consulting.

The following modules are available and priced separately:

  1. SIDLAB Acoustics
    predicts sound transmission loss and sound insertion loss in complex ducts and piping networks – air, steam, water, hydraulic, refrigeration – including the effects of flow and temperature.
  2. SIDLAB Flow
    determines the flow distribution and pressure drop inside the network and feeds the results into the acoustic elements in SIDLAB ™ Acoustics.
  3. SIDLAB Measurement
    calculates the passive properties of muffler elements from the measured data.
  4. SIDLAB Acquisition (with or without flow)
    software for the measurement the acoustic transmission loss of duct elements in the laboratory
  5. SIDLAB Rig (with or without flow)
