A real, actual pipe has mass. It has mass! Hard to confuse something that is heavy with a digital representation of it, isn't it! In this SysML model, that is called a PhysicalEntity and is a special target of digital twinning.

You will be using this test over and over, and we have a special icon for it, which is a classic atom-like icon, to remind us that it is subject to the laws of physics. In reality.
