SPM9613 Demo Program Download

To download a demo version of SPM9613, click the blue link below.

SPM9613 Demo Version

The demo version allows the user to actually get a feel for the program by running sample cases.  It will do everything the commercial program will do with the following exceptions:

1.)  It will limit the number of days of use to 30 days.
2.) It will not let the user save his own noise sources *

3.) It will not let the user save his own contour grid locations or receiver locations *

*Only the noise sources and contour grid files/receiver locations contained within the provided samples can be used with the demo version.

Instructions on Downloading

The installation programs are compressed in a self extracting 4.5 meg ZIP file.  Download the file to a large empty directory (folder) on your computer.  After downloading, execute the file SPMDEMO.EXE by double clicking on the file.  It will produce all the necessary installation files.  

Next, execute setup.exe by double clicking on it.  Allow the program to install itself in the default directory (file folders) on your computer's C: drive.  

The SPM9613 Demo program (SPM9613.EXE) will run like any other Windows based programs on your PC.

Note: For the samples to work correctly, the program must be allowed to install in the default directory on your computers C: drive !!! 

Example Of Running Project (Samples)

Samples must be in the directory "C:\SPM9613 for them to work correctly.  This will automatically be performed for you if you've allowed the program to install itself in the default directory.  If you did not allow the program to install itself in the default directory, you will be required to manually change the location of each sample file to agree with your project control panel.

After installing the samples from the CD-ROM to your C: drive,  perform the following:

In the project control panel file, go to File and Open.

Be sure you are in C:\SPM9613.

If you've correctly loaded the program to it's default directory, the sample files will be showing you  "econ1.prj", "line.prj", and "pointe33.prj".

Highlight the econ1.prj  file and double click or click on the open button.

It will show a list of files for the "Project" when you click on the Source, Barrier, Industrial Site and Foliage, or Observer file tabs.

You can look at the project input by clicking on "View" while in the Project Control Panel form.    
The equipment layout can be viewed as well as observers and contour observer points.

After viewing the project, go to the "Source" Tab, double click on stack exit.  You can "View" the coordinates and the spectrum.   While still in the Source Definition form, click the directivity menu item and select "Z-axis".  You can "view" the directivity information.

Try the doing similar things with the Barriers and Foliage.

Now click on the "observers" tab and double click on the contour  File.  It will show you the coordinates you've defined for the contour.   You can look at the ground elevation and hardness by clicking on "Contour Ground Characteristics".  Now you can view the elevation (surface plot) or hardness (Contour).

You can also view the observers file (individually user selected observers) by double clicking on it.  These are user selected data points (not contour points.)   A check mark indicates the calculation will include the "Observer".   Removing the check mark will cause the calculation to bypass that specific data point.


You can run the program by clicking on Run.  After you've run your first calculation, you can view it later (the output is automatically saved from the last run) .

You can "view" the composite source spectra for each observer or the contour plot.  The observer that you view can be selected by the drop down list box showing the coordinates of the observer.  If you've run a contour calculation, you can view the contour plot.  The contour data can be found in the file item marked "data".  The data can be copied into other applications or contouring programs.

Other Samples, such as "line.prj" and "pointe33.prj" can be loaded run in a similar fashion.

Plot Screen Resolution  

In some cases, the text resolution of the various three dimensional plots shown on your computer's monitor may not be readable.  The printed versions of the plots, however, will be significantly improved.  On high resolution printers, the plots will be presentation quality.
