 Italian term or phrase: parzializzare La situazione di massima eccentricita` non dovra` parzializzare la sezione a contatto con il terreno (risultante all'interno del nocciolo d'inerzia) This is with reference to the structural analysis of an underpass. Eurodic.gave me "slice" for parzializzare but with reference to electric currents. Any ideas?

Explanation:
"The condition of maximum eccentricity must not reduce the amount of section in contact with the ground"

There's surely a better way to say it, but that's the sense of it, anyway.

Maximum eccentricity means the amount of eccentric load (at one side rather than straight down over)which the structure is designed to withstand. When the structure is under such a condition (a truck passing by, for instance), the supporting structure must not "tip", but remain flat on the ground, so that the entire section remains in contact with the ground.

This is not easy stuff--you may get into trouble if you just look up words... :-)

You are probaly talking about footings, so I don\'t really mean flat _on_ the ground, but rather uniform soil contact under the footing, across the entire section.
