Re: steel beam penetrations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi Glauco,

A "penetration" is where something goes thru another object.  For example, a 
bullet can "penetrate" (go thru) a piece of wood, wires can "penetrate" (go 
thru) a wall, heating/cooling ducts can "penetrate" (go thru) a beam.

"Penetrations" in the original message refer to "holes" cut in the web of a 
steel beam so that *something* can go thru.

Hope this helps.
