Italian term or phrase: setti
Due frasi:

Sono caratterizzati da una organizzazione interna con reticolo a trama ortogonale, !!!!setti di spessore normale!!!!, massa alleggerita e percentuale di foratura contenuta.

Sono il risultato di un attento miglioramento della organizzazione dei !!!!setti interni!!!, della individuazione di una miscela di impasto cotto

Can I use "hollows" here? I'm not sure if they're referring to the internal walls of the hollows, or the hollows themselves, or if there's another term that I just haven't been able to find.

Help!

Thanks in advance,
K

agree  rossella mainardis: from wikipedia : Per setti, si intendono elementi verticali quali pareti in cemento armato, che data la loro massa e la loro elevata inerzia hanno il compito di contrastare le forze sismiche orizzontali. Tipico esempio di setti, sono i muri dei vanoscala
