Defined in File Ifc4x3_rc1.h
There are two general types of cooled or chilled beams: passive and active.
An active Cooled Beam uses a fan or other auxilliary device to aid in air recirculation, while a passive
Cooled Beam relies solely on convection to cool the space.
Enumeration defining the typical types of cooled beams.
The IfcCooledBeamTypeEnum contains the following:
ACTIVE: An active or ventilated cooled beam provides cooling (and heating) but can also function as an air terminal in a ventilation system.
PASSIVE: A passive or static cooled beam provides cooling (and heating) to a room or zone.
USERDEFINED: User-defined cooled beam type.
NOTDEFINED: Undefined cooled beam type.
HISTORY: New enumeration in IFC 2x2.
