7.10.2.9 IfcStructuralCurveMemberTypeEnum

7.10.2.9.1 Semantic definition

This enumeration distinguishes between different types of structural 'curve' members, such as cables.

7.10.2.9.2 Type values

Type Description
CABLE

A tension member which is able to carry transverse loads only under large deflection.

COMPRESSION_MEMBER

A member without tensional stiffness.

PIN_JOINED_MEMBER

A member with capacity to carry axial loads only, i.e. a link. Typically used in trusses.

RIGID_JOINED_MEMBER

A member with capacity to carry transverse and axial loads, i.e. a beam. Its actual joints may be rigid or pinned. Typically used in rigid frames.

TENSION_MEMBER

A member without compressional stiffness.

USERDEFINED

A specially defined member.

NOTDEFINED

A member without further categorization.
