IfcStructuralPointReaction

Definition from buildingSMART International: Instances of the entity IfcStructuralPointReaction are used to define point reactions. IfcStructuralPointReaction inherits all needed attributes from its superclass IfcStructuralReaction.

The structural load, defining the point reaction is given by the attribute AppliedLoad at the supertype IfcStructuralActivitiy. The coordinate system, in which the AppliedLoad is defined is given by the attribute ObjectPlacement at the supertype IfcProduct.

HISTORY: New entity in Release IFC2x Edition 2.

Topology Use Definition

Instances of IfcStructuralPointReaction shall have a topology representation. It includes a placement and a product representation. The IfcProductRepresentation shall be given by an item of Representations being of type "IfcTopologyRepresentation".

Placement

The placement for IfcStructuralPointReaction is determined at its supertype IfcProduct. It is defined by the optional IfcObjectPlacement, referenced by ObjectPlacement at IfcProduct, which establishes, if given, the object coordinate system that is referenced by the applied load.

Topology Representation

Instances of IfcStructuralPointReaction may have a topology representation given by a vertex with an optional additional geometric representation by a Cartesian point. It can be provided by either

which should be the single item of IfcTopologyRepresentation.Items. If no topology representation is given, the location of the placement is taken as the vertex at which the point reaction takes place.

EXPRESS specification:

ENTITY IfcStructuralPointReaction
SUBTYPE OF ( IfcStructuralReaction);
WHERE
WR61  :  SIZEOF(['IFCSTRUCTURALLOADRESOURCE.IFCSTRUCTURALLOADSINGLEFORCE', 'IFCSTRUCTURALLOADRESOURCE.IFCSTRUCTURALLOADSINGLEDISPLACEMENT'] * TYPEOF(SELF\IfcStructuralActivity.AppliedLoad)) = 1;
END_ENTITY;

Formal Propositions:

WR61  :  A structural point reaction should have as a result either a single force, or a single displacement.
