|French term or phrase: dalle sur VV (vide ventilé)|
|This term is from a document detailing the design of a building. It features in a table listing the various types of material used to build the "parois", which I've translated as "walls", but "surfaces" might be more accurate if these "dalles" are part of the flooring, for example. "dalle sur sol" is also in the list, so I presume that "dalle sur VV" must be the opposite to "slab on grade". I've discovered that VV must mean "vide ventilé", which the GDT gives as "ventilated air space". By Googling, I've come across "suspended/elevated slab" and "slab over crawl space". But I haven't found "slab over ventilated air space", for example.|
Does anyone know what this term should be? Many thanks!
