Tech/Engineering - Mathematics & Statistics / (Offshore) construction/architecture
 French term or phrase: épure de Crémona From a post-grad work sheet on maths and physics of offshore construction. Does anyone know if this is the name of a design software for example? Having trouble finding it online to verify translation. It appears once in the document in the following chunck of text which preceeds a computer drawn diagram. A partir des efforts externes trouvés, calculer les efforts dans les diagonales et les horizontales des faces du jacket. Pour cela on analysera le modèle simplifié isostatique (articulations aux extrémités des tubes) d'une face (programme ordinateur, épure de Crémona, équilibre des noeuds etc.).

agree  Alex Lane: Cremona adapted graphical techniques (such as the ones used at the drafting table) to address engineering issues.
