Public Functions

bool hasPrefix() const

Whether the optional attribute Prefix is defined for this IfcSIUnit.

::Ifc4x2::IfcSIPrefix::Value Prefix() const

The SI Prefix for defining decimal multiples and submultiples of the unit.

void setPrefix(::Ifc4x2::IfcSIPrefix::Value v)
::Ifc4x2::IfcSIUnitName::Value Name() const

The word, or group of words, by which the SI unit is referred to.

NOTE Even though the SI system’s base unit for mass is kilogram, the IfcSIUnit for mass is gram if no Prefix is asserted.
