German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering
German term or phrase: Regelschnitt
Es handelt sich um die Legende unterhalb technischen Skizzen (Tunnel, Brücke), die man sonst als Querschnitte bezeichnen würde.

Ist "Regelschnitt" tatsächlich "Querschnitt", oder bedeutet es etwas anderes?

Danke für die Erklärung!

typical cross section/typical profile
Explanation:
this is what Gelbrich, FWB Bauwesen offers for Regelquerschnitt. a search of German URLs for Regelschnitt(www.blockhaus-rohrbach.de/verarb.htm) shows a Regelquerschnitt.My Bildwörterbuch Duden confirms *Typical cross section* for *Regelquerschnitt*.
Hope this helps.

typical section / typical sectional view / typical profile


Explanation:
Both Bucksch and Gelbrich/Reinwaldt list
Regelquerschnitt - typical cross-section
Regelprofil - typical profile
Schnitt - section, profile, sectional view

See if that fits into your context.

Also check out
www.detail.de/archiv/artikel.php3?ID=1230
where Regelschnitt is used as part of the overall description of the plans. Hope this helps steer you in the right direction...

cross-section


Explanation:
Querschnitt does most definitely refer to cross-section

in common usage

I assumed that you already know that, from the tenor of your question

and it can refer to a segment of an engineering sketch/model diagram
