English term or phrase: flitch
flitch beam

Skopiowane z wikipedii: A flitch beam (or flitched beam) is a compound beam used in the construction of houses, decks, and other primarily wood-frame structures. Typically, the flitch beam is made up of a steel plate sandwiched between two wood beams, the three layers being held together with bolts. In that common form it is sometimes referenced as a steel flitch beam. Further alternating layers of wood and steel can be used to produce an even stronger beam. The metal plate(s) within the beam are known as flitch plates.

Źródło: Słownik WNT:
"Flitch" to jest część składowa belki złożonej, "flitch plate" to przekładka stalowa belki złożonej, więc "flitch beam" to będzie belka złożona. Bo chyba Twoje pytanie powinno brzmieć co to jest "flitch beam"?
