IfcCoolingTowerType: public Ifc2x3::IfcEnergyConversionDeviceType¶
The energy conversion device type IfcCoolingTowerType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of cooling towers. The set of shared information may include:
common properties with shared property sets common representations of shape common materials common composition of elements common ports applicable assignment of process types
It is used to define a cooling tower specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Cooling Tower types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences. Occurrences of IfcCoolingTowerType are represented by instances of IfcCoolingTower.
HISTORY: New entity in IFC2x2
Property Set Use Definition The property sets relating to this entity are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the HasPropertySets attribute. Refer to the documentation at the supertype IfcEnergyConversionDeviceType and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_CoolingTowerTypeCommon
Material Use Definition The material of the IfcCoolingTowerType is defined by IfcMaterialConstituentSet or as a fallback by IfcMaterial, and attached by the RelatingMaterial attribute on the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship. It is accessible by the HasAssociations inverse attribute. The following keywords for IfcMaterialConstituentSet.MaterialConstituents[n].Name shall be used:
‘Casing’: Material from which the casing is constructed. ‘Fill’: Fill material.
Composition Use Definition The IfcCoolingTowerType may be aggregated into components using IfcRelAggregates where RelatingObject refers to the enclosing IfcCoolingTowerType and RelatedObjects contains one or more components. Components are reflected at occurrences of this type using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Aggregation use is defined for the following predefined types:
MECHANICALFORCEDDRAFT: May contain IfcFan components. Forces air into the cooling tower. MECHANICALINDUCEDDRAFT: May contain IfcFan components. Induces air out of the cooling tower.
Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcCoolingTowerType type are defined by IfcDistributionPort and attached by the IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. Ports are reflected at occurrences of this type using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Refer to the documentation at IfcCoolingTower for standard port definitions.
Defines the typical types of cooling towers (e.g., OpenTower, ClosedTower, CrossFlow, etc.).
