clay toe and clay shell

    Does anybody knows about the meaning of clay toe or clay shell?. Clay is "arcilla", but it doesn´t have any sense talking about precast concrete products.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi paquimap,
    In a sloped wall, the "toe" is the "pie." This thread talks about it in terms of a dam.
    The "clay shell" is the "molde de arcilla" (probably that in which the concrete is cast).

    I hope that helps.
