 French term or phrase: épaisseur I have got myself very confused over this term. It appears several times in the post-grad student worksheet I'm translating on the maths and physics of offshore construction design. I'll paste the occurences below. At first I had translated it as 'ply' because 'thickness' didn't seem to fit, but now I'm not so sure! Some fresh eyes would be very useful :) Could it be something like pipe/tube width? I am hesitant because it talks about pipe diameter and OD (outside diameter) as a pipe classification. On ne descendra pas en dessous de 12" pour le diamètre des tubes principaux et de 3/8” pour les épaisseurs qui seront des multiples du 1/8". ... Pour des raisons de stock existant, les membrures du jacket seront en 34" OD sans restriction sur les épaisseurs; les piles seront en 30" OD avec une disponibilité d'épaisseur de ¾", 1" et 1 ¼". ... Les piles pourront être d’épaisseur variable. ... Détermination des épaisseurs: A partir des efforts internes et des contraintes admissibles en compression, calculer la section de métal nécessaire à la reprise des efforts pour un taux de contrainte axial de 0.8 (on se ménage un taux de flexion de 0.2) : [non-KudoZ-friendly equation] En déduire le tube normalisé qui convient. ... Pour les diagonales de niveau, on adoptera l'épaisseur minimale.
