Tech/Engineering / bridge construction
French term or phrase: Ouvrages miste en BHP à connexion différée
Civil engineering: bridge building
This is a header concerning a new process for faster bridge building. I really just need to know what they mean by connexion différée in this context. Joint, bond or connection and what to do with différée? Anyone help?

English translation:indirect assembly or indirectly assembled
Explanation:
I think it means indirect; it';snot directly assembled. The pieces are prefabricated and then assembled.

I found this from the site you are translating (for context):
l’utilisation du procédé de connexion différée qui consiste à assembler un hourdis préfabriqué sur une charpente métallique, en venant souder, à travers des réservations du tablier, des goujons de type Nelson,

l’assemblage des éléments
