class Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcQuantityArea : public Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcPhysicalSimpleQuantity

IfcQuantityArea is a physical quantity that defines a derived area measure to provide an element’s physical property. It is normally derived from the physical properties of the element under the specific measure rules given by a method of measurement.

EXAMPLE An opening may have an opening area used to deduct it from the wall surface area. The actual size of the area depends on the method of measurement used.

HISTORY New entity in IFC2x. It replaces the calcXxx attributes used in previous IFC Releases.

Public Functions

double AreaValue() const

Area measure value of this quantity.

void setAreaValue(double v)
bool hasFormula() const

Whether the optional attribute Formula is defined for this IfcQuantityArea.

std::string Formula() const

A formula by which the quantity has been calculated. It can be assigned in addition to the actual value of the quantity. Formulas could be mathematic calculations (like width x height), database links, or a combination. The formula is for informational purposes only.
