Platte / Paneel - Standard
Plaque standard

The standard plate, IfcPlateStandardCase, defines a plate with certain constraints for the provision of material usage, parameters and with certain constraints for the geometric representation. The IfcPlateStandardCase handles all cases of plates, that:

The definitions of plate openings and niches are the same as given at the supertype IfcPlate. The same agreements to the special types of plates, as defined in the PredefinedType attribute apply as well.

HISTORY  New entity in IFC4.

Common Use Definitions

The following concepts are inherited at supertypes:

Material Layer Set Usage

The Material Layer Set Usage concept applies to this entity.

The material of the IfcPlateStandardCase is defined by IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage and attached by the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial.RelatingMaterial. It is accessible by the inverse HasAssociations relationship. Multi-layer plates can be represented by refering to several IfcMaterialLayer's within the IfcMaterialLayerSet that is referenced from the IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage

Material information can also be given at the IfcPlateType, defining the common attribute data for all occurrences of the same type. It is then accessible by the inverse IsDefinedBy relationship pointing to IfcPlateType.HasAssociations and via IfcRelAssociatesMaterial.RelatingMaterial.

The IfcPlateStandardCase defines in addition that the IfcPlateType should have a unique IfcMaterialLayerSet, that is referenced by the IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage assigned to all occurrences of this IfcPlateType.

Figure 196 illustrates assignment of IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage and IfcMaterialLayerSet to the IfcPlateStandardCase as the plate occurrence and to the IfcPlateType. The same IfcMaterialLayerSet shall be shared by many occurrences of IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage. This relationship shall be consistent to the relationship between the IfcPlateType and the IfcPlateStandardCase.

As shown in Figure 106, the following conventions shall be met:

Product Placement

The Product Placement concept applies to this entity as shown in Table 140.
IfcLocalPlacementIfcLocalPlacementRelative placement according to position and rotation relative to container.
IfcLocalPlacement Absolute placement according to position and rotation of world coordinate system.
IfcGridPlacement Placement according to grid intersection.

The following restriction is imposed:

Body SweptSolid Geometry

The Body SweptSolid Geometry concept applies to this entity.

The following additional constraints apply to the swept solid representation:


standard plate
EXAMPLE  Figure 198 illustrates a 'SweptSolid' geometric representation. The following interpretation of dimension parameter applies for polygonal plates (in ground floor view): IfcArbitraryClosedProfileDef.OuterCurve being a closed bounded curve is interpreted as area (or foot print) of the plate.

Body Clipping Geometry

The Body Clipping Geometry concept applies to this entity.

The following constraints apply to the 'Clipping' representation:


advanced plate
EXAMPLE  Figure 199 illustrates a 'Clipping' geometric representation with definition of a plate using advanced geometric representation. The profile is extruded non-perpendicular and the plate body is clipped at the eave.
