English term or phrase: arch materials
« Investigation of availabiiity and suitability of alternative arch materials, systems and equipments »

J'ai un tableau décrivant les responsabilités des employés d'un grand chantier de construction. Cet item est l'un d'eux, dans une section intitulée "Phase 1 : Schematic Design". L'item est précédé par ces autres items :

- Preliminary sections and elevations
- Preliminary selection of building systems and materials

et est suivi par :

- Development of approximate dimensions, areas, and volumes

Désolée, pas plus de contexte que ça. Je croîs que "arch" fait référence aux "voussoirs", mais j'aimerais m'en assurer. Deuxièmement, comme on parle aussi des "architectes" (design architect & executive architect) dans cette section, s'agirait-il d'une abbrév. ? Merci de me dire si vous avez une meilleure idée que moi.

Quelqu'un spécialisé dans ce domaine peut-il m'éclairer ?

matériaux de voussoir
Explanation:
An applied analysis showed that the required strength for arch material is not necessarily given for stone blocks. This allows the use of chipped stone, set slag material, and set concrete waste for arch material without the need for reinforced concrete.
...
A supporting structure can be used for building conventional concrete arches. The structure of the support must be made so that it can be easily cut out and removed after the arch construction is completed.
