IfcStructuralLoad

Definition from buildingSMART International: The abstract entity IfcStructuralLoad is the supertype of all loads which can be defined (actions or reactions, as well as dynamic or static).

Subtypes of this entity are an important part of the definition of actions and reactions. They are used to specify the load values. The location and the used coordinate system are defined by instances of IfcStructuralActivity which reference an instance of IfcStructuralLoad for the definition of the load values. This offers the possibility to use instances of IfcStructuralLoad by several instances of IfcStructuralActivity.

NOTE: Within the scope of this IFC release dynamic loads are not considered, therefore only one subtype, IfcStructuralLoadStatic, is defined.

HISTORY: New entity in Release IFC2x edition 2.
