English term or phrase: section thru
Bonjour à tous, je traduis actuellement un document traitant du démantèlement d'un réacteur modéré au graphite et je bute sur l'expression "section thru" dans la phrase suivante : "Section thru caisson showing Levels of Sidewall Concrete to be removed". Avez-vous une idée de la manière de la traduire ? S'agit-il simplement de la "section transversale" ? D'avance, merci.
