English term or phrase: loose thrown cord
Es un texto que habla del bosque finlandés y de la madera de sus árboles:

«Wood volume is expressed in special volume units: stacked cubic metres (stm3) and loose cubic metres (lm3).»

«El volumen de la madera se expresa en metros cúbicos compactados (m3c) y metros cúbicos sueltos (m3s)».

Hasta ahí todo bien pero luego aparece:

«"Loose cubic metres" are also referred to as “loose thrown cord”.» que es una unidad de medida antigua que equivale al «loose cubic metres» metro cúbico suelto. He encontrado «cuerda» pero no sé cómo traducir el resto: ¿Cuerda arrojada suelta? Pero el problema es que en mi texto dice que son equivalentes: pero luego un conversor en línea me dice: https://es.converterin.com/area/metro-cuadrado-to-cuerda.htm... y no es lo mismo.... :/ Ayuda, por favor.

volumen abundado


Explanation:
Por la definición (por ejemplo; a thrown cord, or loose cord, is a rough measurement of wood thrown, not stacked) parece equivalente al concepto castellano de volumen abundado (por ejemplo, ver gráfico explicativo de página 5: http://www.ptolomeo.unam.mx:8080/xmlui/bitstream/handle/132.... ).
