This question was closed without grading. Reason: Answer found elsewhere
French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Forestry / Wood / Timber
French term or phrase:Plots reconstitués
I've done the research and I know what the definition is:
Un plot est constitué de l'ensemble des plateaux obtenus par le sciage.....
I did unusually close without grading as I used 'batches' but thanks anyway.
Someone sent me a reference from a glossary where the French term 'boule' is used but is it so obscure and rare on Internet that i gave it a miss too.
Thanks again to all
Making the Grade
A guide to appearance grading UK grown hardwood timber
A stack of timber formed from a log that is sawn longitudinally by a series of successive parallel cuts with the resultant waney-edged pieces then assembled to recreate the original form of the log. http://www.forestry.gov.uk/pdf/MTG-WEB.pdf/$file/MTG-WEB.pdf

Explanation: Looking at the pictures, that's what I'd call them.

Explanation: We used to call them bundles at the sawmill I worked in. They are the flat sawn (i.e. plain sawn, as opposed to quarter sawn or rift sawn) boards (flitches) from a log, stacked in the order they were positioned in the log before sawing, with spacers between them to allow drying, and bundled with steel ties.

packs of planks reassembled into their original log form
Explanation: can't find anything shorter
constructing the log model. - The central axis of each log in
the sample is located by marking the center of both ends of the log
(fig. I) Boards are then sawed parallel to the Y axis. Using the central
axis as a reference, each board surface is identified by the Z-axis location
it held before sawing. Similarly, the board width is identified by Y-axis
values and the board length by X-axis values.
Defects in each board are grouped into classes that depend upon the
products being considered. Each class includes those defects that would
cause rejection of the piece for a particular use. For examp!e, if the yield
of parts for pallets, flooring, or dimension stock is to be determined, then
three classes of defects can be used. When the yield of pallet parts is being
computed, program DEFECT will ignore the flooring and dimension
classes of defects.
Program DEFECT provides for reassembly of the boards into their
original log form. Because board outline and defect location have been
converted to numerical data, they are "visible" to the computer; therefore,
the reassembled log can be considered a "glass log."
