6.1.3.49 IfcWallType

Wand - Typ
Type de mur

The element type IfcWallType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of walls. The set of shared information may include:

NOTE  It is illegal to share shape representations as representation maps for occurrences of IfcWallStandardcase.

It is used to define a wall specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Wall types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences.

NOTE  The product representations are defined as representation maps (at the level of the supertype IfcTypeProduct, which gets assigned by an element occurrence instance through the IfcShapeRepresentation.Item[1] being an IfcMappedItem.

Occurrences of the IfcWallType within building models are represented by instances of IfcWallStandardCase if the IfcWallType has a single associated IfcMaterialLayerSet; otherwise they are represented by instances of IfcWall, or IfcWallElementedCase. Occurrences of the IfcWallType within structural analysis models are represented by instances of IfcStructuralSurfaceMember, or its applicable subtypes.

HISTORY  New entity in IFC2x2.

Informal Propositions:

  1. The material assignment, if provided using the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship, shall not reference the IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage.

Common Use Definitions

Material Layer Set

The Material Layer Set concept applies to this entity.

The material of the IfcWallType is defined by the IfcMaterialLayerSet or as fall back by IfcMaterial and attached by the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial.RelatingMaterial. It is accessible by the inverse HasAssociations relationship.

NOTE  It is illegal to assign an IfcMaterial to an IfcWallType, if there is at least one occurrences. of IfcWallStandardCase for this type.

The shared material layer set definition is defined by assigning an IfcMaterialLayerSet (see material use definition above). The IfcMaterialLayer refers to one or several of IfcMaterialLayer that is the common for all wall occurrence, if used. It is only applicable if the IfcWallType has only occurrences of type IfcWallStandardCase (see definition of IfcWallStandardCase for further information).

NOTE  Since each individual instance of IfcWallStandardCase defines its own IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage including the offset from the wall axis, the same IfcWallType can be used independently of the axis alignment of its occurrences.
