cradle vault
Explanation:
Cradle vault sau barrel vault sau tunnel vault sau wagon vault, se pare că toate sunt acelaşi lucru, conform http://www.britannica.com


Four common types of vault. A barrel vault (also called a cradle vault, tunnel vault, or wagon vault) has a semicircular cross section. A groin (or cross) vault is formed by the perpendicular intersection of two barrel vaults. A rib (or ribbed) vault is supported by a series of arched diagonal ribs that divide the vault’s surface into panels. A fan vault is composed of concave sections with ribs spreading out like a fan.
