8.10.4.5.3 Properties

Name Property Type Data Type Description
CombustionTemperature IfcPropertySingleValue IfcThermodynamicTemperatureMeasure

Combustion temperature.

Combustion temperature of the material when air is at 298 K and 100 kPa.

CarbonContent IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveRatioMeasure

The carbon content in the fuel. This is measured in weight of carbon per unit weight of fuel and is therefore unitless.

LowerHeatingValue IfcPropertySingleValue IfcHeatingValueMeasure

Lower Heating Value is defined as the amount of energy released (MJ/kg) when a fuel is burned completely, and H2O is in vapor form in the combustion products.

HigherHeatingValue IfcPropertySingleValue IfcHeatingValueMeasure

Higher Heating Value is defined as the amount of energy released (MJ/kg) when a fuel is burned completely, and H2O is in liquid form in the combustion products.
