22.214.171.124.1 Semantic definition
Common definition to capture sound pressure at a point on behalf of a device typically used within the context of building services and flow distribution systems. To indicate sound values from an instance of IfcDistributionFlowElement at a particular location, IfcAnnotation instance(s) should be assigned to the IfcDistributionFlowElement through the IfcRelAssignsToProduct relationship. The IfcAnnotation should specify ObjectType of 'Sound' and geometric representation of 'Annotation Point' consisting of a single IfcPoint subtype as described at IfcAnnotation. This property set is instantiated multiple times on an object for each frequency band. HISTORY: New property set in IFC Release 2x4.

The reference sound scale.
DBA: Decibels in an A-weighted scale DBB: Decibels in an B-weighted scale DBC: Decibels in an C-weighted scale NC: Noise criteria NR: Noise rating
List of nominal sound frequencies, correlated to the SoundPressure time series values (IfcTimeSeries.ListValues)
A time series of sound pressure values measured in decibels at a reference pressure of 20 microPascals for the referenced octave band frequency. Each value in IfcTimeSeries.ListValues is correlated to the sound frequency at the same position within SoundFrequencies.
