    Hello,
    Is "Calculation note" the equivalent for "Note de calcul" in the building field?
    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks Cold Sweat.
    Is there any distinct difference between “design calculation” and “calculation note”?
    I’ve also came across “design calculation note”.
    Thanks!

    Calculation note est une traduction mot à mot du français qui n'a pas de sens en anglais. Le terme technique est. comme l'a indiqué Cold Sweat, design calculation.

    On trouve bien l'expression sur google, MAIS:
    • soit il y a des mots avant calculation, et l'expression est donc différente. Exemple: mortgage calculation note = note sur le calcul de l'emprunt.
    • soit, c'est utilisé par des francophones (comme ici), et le dialogue est souvent du type:
      • I need a calculation note of building
      • What do you mean by "calculation note"? :)
    NB: Dans le lien précédemment cité, la réponse qui suit est reformulée avec design note of building ;)

    It's taken from a list of duties the architect has perform.

    Elaboration of the structural design calculations?

    You're saying notes de calcul translates as design notes?

    I found 'design calculations' (see post #5).

    Edit: apparently this thread was merged with another so my other post is now #10.
