## 8.9.3.29.1 Semantic definition

The cylindrical surface is a surface unbounded in the direction of z. Bounded cylindrical surfaces are defined by using a subtype of IfcBoundedSurface with BasisSurface being a cylindrical surface.

The inherited attributes are interpreted as

• SELF\IfcElementarySurface.Position defines the location and orientation of the cylindrical surface.
• SELF\IfcElementarySurface.Position.Location defines a point on the axis of the cylindrical surface.
• SELF\IfcElementarySurface.Position.P[3] defines the direction of the axis of the cylindrical surface.
