    Can anyone help with:-

    1 - Terrazas invertidas

    2 - Anisotropías

    3 - Heterogeneidades

    Nos. 2 & 3 refer to resistencia - for example of mortero.

    Can anyone recommend a good Spanish-English dictionary covering the field of architecture and construction - I obviously need to buy one? Is there anything online that would keep me going temporarily?

    Thanks in advance

    Ed

    Segun una contribución de "Geni" (23/07/08) una "terraza invertida" es el aislamiento por la cara exterior de una terraza o de una cubierta.

    En el mundo inglés, mucho más práctico que el español, el término a utilizar es sencilla y llanamente "external wall insulation."

    Hay un artículo en inglés sobre las ventajas e inconvenientes de usar aislamiento externo para las terrazas que precisamente le dá la razon a "Geni." Aislamiento por la cara interior ("internal wall insulation") es la mejor opción.

    La referencia es:

    .............

    "Anisotropía" es "anisotropy" en inglés, la variabilidad de una propiedad física según la dirección que se tome. Por ejemplo, el fenómeno de lentes polarizadas.
    .............

    "Heterogeneidades" es "heterogeneities" en inglés.
