8.10.3.11.1 Semantic definitions at the entity

IfcMaterialProfile is a single and identifiable cross section of an element which is constructed of a number of profiles (one or more).

NOTE  In case of multiple MaterialProfiles, the relative positioning of individual profiles in IfcMaterialProfileSet are defined using the concept of IfcCompositeProfileDef in IfcProfileResource schema; otherwise, only one MaterialProfile is given and defined by an individual IfcProfileDef (subtype).

8.10.3.11.1 Attributes

# Attribute Type Description
IfcMaterialDefinition
AssociatedTo SET [0:?] OF IfcRelAssociatesMaterial FOR RelatingMaterial Use of the IfcMaterialDefinition subtypes within the material association of an element occurrence or element type. The association is established by the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship.

> IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute has been added.
HasExternalReferencesSET [0:?] OF IfcExternalReferenceRelationship FOR RelatedResourceObjectsReference to external references, e.g. library, classification, or document information, that are associated to the material.

> IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute has been added.
HasProperties SET [0:?] OF IfcMaterialProperties FOR Material Material properties assigned to instances of subtypes of IfcMaterialDefinition.

> IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute has been added.
IfcMaterialProfile
1 Name OPTIONAL IfcLabel The name by which the material profile is known.
2 Description OPTIONAL IfcText Definition of the material profile in descriptive terms.
3 Material OPTIONAL IfcMaterial Optional reference to the material from which the profile is constructed.
4 Profile IfcProfileDef Identification of the profile for which this material profile is associating material.
5 Priority OPTIONAL IfcInteger The relative priority of the profile, expressed as normalised integer range [0..100]. Controls how profiles intersect in connections and corners of building elements: A profile from one element protrudes into (i.e. displaces) a profile from another element in a joint of these elements if the former element's profile has higher priority than the latter. The priority value for a material profile in an element has to be set and maintained by software applications in relation to the material profiles in connected elements.
6 Category OPTIONAL IfcLabel Category of the material profile, e.g. the role it has in the profile set it belongs to. The list of keywords might be extended by model view definitions, however the following keywords shall apply in general:

* 'LoadBearing' — the material profile having a load bearing function.

* 'Insulation' — the material profile having an insolating function.

* 'Finish' — the material profile being the finish.
ToMaterialProfileSet IfcMaterialProfileSet FOR MaterialProfiles Material profile set in which this material profile is included.
