COLLAR: A linear element (usually used horizontally) within a roof structure to connect rafters and posts. MEMBER: A linear element within a girder or truss with no further meaning. MULLION: A linear element within a curtain wall system to connect two (or more) panels. PLATE: Alinear continuous horizontal element in wall framing, e.g. a head piece or a sole plate.

NOTE This head piece or sole plate shall not be mixed up with planar elements, such as sheets and panels, that are handled as IfcPlate (and IfcPlateType).

POST: A linear member (usually used vertically) within a roof structure to support purlins. PURLIN: A linear element (usually used horizontally) within a roof structure to support rafters RAFTER: A linear elements used to support roof slabs or roof covering, usually used with slope. STRINGER: A linear element used to support stair or ramp flights, usually used with slope. STRUT: A linear element often used within a girder or truss. STUD: Vertical element in wall framing.
