Spanish term or phrase: columnas atimpanadas (bridge construction)
"La solución adoptada en la subestructura es de columnas atimpanadas de manera que presente gran rigidez en sentido transversal..." This document comes from Cuba. Also the terms "barras salientes", "nervios", "vaso" and "tímpanos" in the following phrase: Las cimentaciones de pila, tanto las dos indirectas, como la directa, tienen barras salients de forma tal que puedan construirse dos nervios cuya función principal es servir de vaso para el alojamiento de los tímpanos.
I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
