Issue 332: Properties of S10 Material Substantial of CRMsci
Posted by Chryssoula on 23/3/2107
The class S10 Material Substantial of CRMsci has the following definition:
S10 Material Substantial
Subclass of: E70 Thing
Superclass of: S14 Fluid Body
S11 Amount of Matter
E18 Physical Thing
Scope note: This class comprises constellations of matter with a relative stability of any form sufficient to associate them with a persistent identity, such as being confined to certain extent, having a relative stability of form or structure, or containing a fixed amount of matter. In particular, it comprises physical things in the narrower sense and fluid bodies. It is an abstraction of physical substance for solid and non-solid things of matter.
P46 is composed of (forms part of): S10 Material Substantial
O15 occupied (was occupied by): E53 Place
It has been proposed in the past to move the CIDOC CRM properties P44, P45 and P46 from E18 Physical Thing to E70 Thing for facilitating their inheritance in S10. The decision of CRM SIG is still pending.
