IFC (IFC4X3) development Pset_TankTypeCommon Semantic definition

Common attributes of a tank type. Applicable entities Properties

Name Property Type Data Type Description
Reference IfcPropertySingleValue IfcIdentifier

Reference ID for this specified type in this project (e.g. type 'A-1'), Also referred to as "construction type". It should be provided as an alternative to the name of the "object type", if the software does not support object types and no classification reference to a recognized classification system used.

Status IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_ElementStatus

Status of the element, predominately used in renovation or retrofitting projects. The status can be assigned to as "New" - element designed as new addition, "Existing" - element exists and remains, "Demolish" - element existed but is to be demolished, "Temporary" - element will exists only temporary (like a temporary support structure).

AccessType IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_TankAccessType

Defines the types of access (or cover) to a tank that may be specified.

Note that covers are generally specified for rectangular tanks. For cylindrical tanks, access will normally be via a manhole.

StorageType IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_TankStorageType

Defines the general material category intended to be stored.

NominalLengthOrDiameter IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

The nominal length or, in the case of a vertical cylindrical tank, the nominal diameter of the tank.

NominalWidthOrDiameter IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

The nominal width or, in the case of a horizontal cylindrical tank, the nominal diameter of the tank.

Note: Not required for a vertical cylindrical tank.

NominalDepth IfcPropertySingleValue IfcNonNegativeLengthMeasure

Nominal Depth of the object

TankNominalCapacity IfcPropertySingleValue IfcVolumeMeasure

The total nominal or design volumetric capacity of the tank.

EffectiveCapacity IfcPropertySingleValue IfcVolumeMeasure

The total effective or actual volumetric capacity of the tank.

OperatingWeight IfcPropertySingleValue IfcMassMeasure

Operating weight of the tank including all of its contents.

PatternType IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_TankPatternType

Defines the types of pattern (or shape of a tank that may be specified.

EndShapeType IfcPropertyEnumeratedValue PEnum_EndShapeType

Defines the types of end shapes that can be used for preformed tanks. The convention for reading these enumerated values is that for a vertical cylinder, the first value is the base and the second is the top; for a horizontal cylinder, the order of reading should be left to right. For a speherical tank, the value UNSET should be used.

FirstCurvatureRadius IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

FirstCurvatureRadius should be defined as the base or left side radius of curvature value.

SecondCurvatureRadius IfcPropertySingleValue IfcPositiveLengthMeasure

SecondCurvatureRadius should be defined as the top or right side radius of curvature value.

NumberOfSections IfcPropertySingleValue IfcCountMeasure

Number of sections.

Number of sections used in the construction of the tank. Default is 1.Note: All sections assumed to be the same size.
