French term or phrase: plan de calpinage
This is a new term for me (but I'm not an expert!).

The source text says "une étude thermique, une étude hydraulique ainsi qu’un ***plan de calpinage*** ...."

Here is a definition :"La répartition des montants souvent appelée le calpinage doit respecter les dimensions des panneaux extérieurs.. "

That's clear enough - but what is the English term ?!

Thanks for any suggestions.
