class Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcRelAggregates : public Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcRelDecomposes

The aggregation relationship IfcRelAggregates is a special type of the general composition/decomposition (or whole/part) relationship IfcRelDecomposes. The aggregation relationship can be applied to all subtypes of IfcObjectDefinition. In cases of aggregation of physical elements into a physical aggregate the shape representation of the whole (within the same representation identifier) can be taken from the sum of the shape representations of the parts. EXAMPLE A roof is the aggregation of the roof elements, such as roof slabs, rafters, purlins, etc. Within the same representation identifier, e.g. the body geometric representation, the shape representation of the roof is given by the shape representation of its parts Decompositions imply a dependency, i.e. the definition of the whole depends on the definition of the parts and the parts depend on the existence of the whole. The behaviour that is implied from the dependency has to be established inside the applications.

HISTORY New entity in IFC Release 2x.

IFC2x4 CHANGE The attributes RelatingObject and RelatedObjects are demoted from the supertype IfcRelDecomposes.

Public Types

Public Functions

::Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcObjectDefinition *RelatingObject() const

The object definition, either an object type or an object occurrence, that represents the aggregation. It is the whole within the whole/part relationship.

IFC2x4 CHANGE The attribute has been demoted from the supertype IfcRelDecomposes and defines the non-ordered aggregation relationship.

void setRelatingObject(::Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcObjectDefinition *v)
IfcTemplatedEntityList<::Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcObjectDefinition>::ptr RelatedObjects() const

The object definitions, either object occurrences or object types, that are being aggregated. They are defined as the parts in the whole/part relationship. No order is implied between the parts.

IFC2x4 CHANGE The attribute has been demoted from the supertype IfcRelDecomposes and defines the non-ordered set of parts within the aggregation.
