Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / Hydraulics
English term or phrase: THROUGH INVERT DETAIL
Saudações!

O livro é engenharia/hidráulica. Tenho uma figura assim descrita: "Construction detail of typical inlet".

Há dois desenhos nessa figura. Um é SECTION A-A e traz o seguinte: "THROUGH" INVERT DETAIL (com as aspas mesmo). O outro é SECTION B-B e traz o seguinte: "TERMINAL" INVERT DETAIL (com as aspas mesmo).

Alguém pode ajudar, por favor? Isso é muito técnico. "Invert" já me deu problema em outra situação.

detalhe da parte inferior da calha/canaleta
Explanation:
Deve tratar-se de uma gralha, e não deve ser "through" (através), mas "trough" (calha, canaleta), este sim, um termo muito usado em hidráulica, que o Webster's assim define:

trough (trof, traf)
n.
1 a long, narrow, open container of wood, stone, etc. for holding water or food for animals
2 any similarly shaped vessel, as one for kneading or washing something
3 a channel or gutter, esp. one under the eaves of a building, for carrying off rainwater
4 a long, narrow hollow or depression, as between waves
5 a low in any cycle, esp. in an economic cycle
6 a long, narrow area of low barometric pressure

Etymology
[ME < OE trog, akin to Ger < IE *druk- < base *deru-, tree: basic sense, hollowed wooden object]

(C)1995 Zane Publishing, Inc. (C)1994, 1991, 1988 Simon & Schuster, Inc.

Também a palavra "invert", num contexto hidráulico, deve ser examinada com cuidado, pois pode significar - como creio tratar-se o caso em pauta - da parte inferior da canaleta ou calha (a superior é chamada "crown"). Trata-se de substantivo, e não verbo. Veja este exemplo:

CONCRETE PIPE REINFORCING CAGE - Patent 3826287

A palavra "through" não é substantivo, em nenhum caso. Pode ser preposição, advérbio ou adjetivo, como explica o Webster's:

through (tro)
prep.
1 in one side and out the other side of; from end to end of
2 in the midst of; among
3 by way of
4 over the entire extent or surface of
5 to various places in; around [touring through France]
6 a) from the beginning to the end or conclusion of [to go through an experience, through the summer] b) up to and including [through Friday]
7 without making a stop [to go through a red light]
8 past the limitations or difficulties of [to fight one's way through red tape]
9 by means of [through her help]
10 as a result of; because of [done through error]

adv.
1 in one side and out the other; from end to end
2 from the beginning to the end
3 completely to the end; to a conclusion [to see something through]
4 in every part or way; thoroughly; completely [soaked through]: also through and through

adj.
1 extending from one place to another; allowing free passage [a through street]
2 a) traveling to the destination without stops [a through train] b) continuing on without making a stop [through traffic]
3 not necessitating changes; good for traveling without intermediate transfer [a through ticket]
4 arrived at the end; finished [through with an assignment]
5 at the end of one's usefulness, resources, etc. [through in politics]
6 having no further dealings, connections, etc. (with someone or something) Through is also used in idiomatic expressions (e.g., get through), many of which are entered in this dictionary under the key words

Etymology
[ME thurgh, thrugh < OE thurh, akin to Ger durch < IE base *ter-, through, beyond > L trans, across, Sans tirah, through]

Notes to answerer
Asker: Oi! Puxa vida, muito obrigado por essa explicação tão precisa! O que ainda me faz estranhar é a palavra ser mesmo THROUGH, e não TROUGH. Não é erro no livro, pois não aparece só uma vez. E me faz estranhar mais por estar entre aspas.

Asker: Você é SEMPRE muito atencioso. Obrigado! Estou adotando suas explicações (aliás, muito precisas). O que ainda me intriga é THROUGH estar entre aspas. O autor quis indicar algo com isso. Sem as aspas, eu consideraria mais o erro do autor e/ou do revisor.
