IfcTankType: public Ifc2x3::IfcFlowStorageDeviceType¶
The flow storage device type IfcTankType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of tanks. 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 tank specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Tank types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences. Occurrences of IfcTankType are represented by instances of IfcTank.
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 IfcFlowStorageDeviceType and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_TankTypeCommon
The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity according to the PredefinedType attribute:
Pset_TankTypeExpansion (EXPANSION) Pset_TankTypePreformed (PREFORMED) Pset_TankTypePressureVessel (PRESSUREVESSEL) Pset_TankTypeSectional (SECTIONAL)
Material Use Definition The material of the IfcTankType 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:
‘Body’: The primary material from which the object is constructed.
Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcTankType 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 IfcTank for standard port definitions.
