22.214.171.124.1 Semantic definition
The IfcRelAdheresToElement is an objectified relationship between an element and one to many surface feature elements that adhere to the surface of the element. The relationship is defined to be a 1 to many relationship. The IfcRelAdheresToElement establishes an aggregation relationship between the main element and a sub ordinary surface feature.
The IfcRelAdheresToElement implies a surface interface between the geometric bodies of the element and the surface feature . As with all decomposition relationships it determines:
- existence dependency - the RelatedSurfaceFeature cannot exist without the RelatingElement
- hierarchical and non-cyclical relationship - the IfcRelAdheresToElement can only alter a single IfcElement
- no spatial containment - the IfcSurfaceFeature as related element never participates in the hiearchical spatial containment relationship IfcRelContainedInSpatialStructure
