IfcEvaporativeCooler: public Ifc4::IfcEnergyConversionDevice¶
An evaporative cooler is a device that cools air by saturating it with water vapor.
HISTORY New entity in IFC2x4
Type Use Definition IfcEvaporativeCooler defines the occurrence of any evaporative cooler; common information about evaporative cooler types is handled by IfcEvaporativeCoolerType. The IfcEvaporativeCoolerType (if present) may establish the common type name, usage (predefined type), properties, materials, ports, composition, assignments, and representations. The IfcEvaporativeCoolerType is attached using the IfcRelDefinesByType objectified relationship and is accessible by the IsTypedBy inverse attribute. If the IfcEvaporativeCoolerType has ports or aggregated elements, such objects are reflected at the IfcEvaporativeCooler occurrence using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship.
Property Use Definition The property sets relating to this entity are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. They are accessible by the IsDefinedBy inverse attribute. Property sets may also be specified at the IfcEvaporativeCoolerType, defining the common property data for all occurrences of the same type. They are then accessible by the IsTypedBy inverse attribute pointing to IfcEvaporativeCoolerType.HasPropertySets. If both are given, then the properties directly defined at IfcEvaporativeCooler override the properties defined at IfcEvaporativeCoolerType. Refer to the documentation at the supertype IfcEnergyConversionDevice and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_EvaporativeCoolerPHistory (PSET_PERFORMANCEDRIVEN) Pset_EvaporativeCoolerTypeCommon (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)
Quantity Use Definition The quantities relating to this entity are defined by IfcElementQuantity and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. They are accessible by the IsDefinedBy inverse attribute. The following base quantities are defined and shall be exchanged with the IfcElementQuantity.Name = ‘BaseQuantities’. Other quantities, being subjected to local standard of measurement, may be defined with another string value assigned to Name. In this case a valid value for MethodOfMeasurement shall be provided.
Material Use Definition The material of the IfcEvaporativeCooler 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. Material information can also be given at the IfcEvaporativeCoolerType, defining the common attribute data for all occurrences of the same type. The following keywords for IfcMaterialConstituentSet.MaterialConstituents[n].Name shall be used:
Body: The primary material from which the object is constructed. Media: Heat exchanger media material.
Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcEvaporativeCooler are defined by IfcDistributionPort and attached by the IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. If the evaporative cooler occurrence is defined by IfcEvaporativeCoolerType, then the port occurrences must reflect those defined at the IfcEvaporativeCoolerType using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Ports are specific to the IfcEvaporativeCooler PredefinedType as follows indicated by the IfcDistributionPort Name, PredefinedType, and FlowDirection:
WaterIn (DOMESTICCOLDWATER, SINK): Incoming water. AirIn (AIRCONDITIONING, SINK): Incoming air. AirOut (AIRCONDITIONING, SOURCE): Outgoing air saturated with vapor.
Whether the optional attribute PredefinedType is defined for this IfcEvaporativeCooler.
