This is the first time I write in this forum, so first of all, thank you all for reading this. I hope I can also contribute in the future.
I haven’t found a topic regarding the purpose of “IfcBeamTypeEnum”, but if there is any, I apologise.
My structural software classifies the concrete joist that forms part of a slab as IfcBeam, as well as the wood joists. As I see in the following link, we could add the value of IfcBeamTypeEnum:
Concrete joist : IfcBeamTypeEnum = T_BEAM.
Wood joist: IfcBeamTypeEnum = JOIST
I have seen that this information is optional, but what’s the purpose of adding it? I’m asking because I could add it in Archicad, if there is any benefit.
