An arched apartment; especially, a subterranean room, used for storing articles, for a prison, for interment, or the like; a cell; a cellar.
To form with a vault, or to cover with a vault; to give the shape of an arch to; to arch; as, to vault a roof; to vault a passage to a court.
Arched masonry covering over a building, based on the shape of the arch; used for the most part as a ceiling or roof. Common types of vaults are barrel (also known as tunnel or wagon), groin (or cross), rib and fan.
an arched ceiling or roof of stone, brick, or concrete
1. An arched surface. 2. An arch translated along an axis normal to the plane of its centerline curve. 3. A room to store valuable items.
A vault is another name for the concrete container, or grave liner, that holds the casket inside a grave. It is called a vault when the container is lined with plastic, stainless steel or has some other features to seal against moisture.
A ceiling which slopes to a point or arch
A covering system made by consecutive semi-round/circular arches.
Stone roof or ceiling
Cemetery vaults are underground tombs. The word comes from the Latin uoluere, which suggests a turning, referring in the case of vaults to the curving roof of the structure.
An outer container that houses a casket in the ground. A vault usually has a top seal and may have an interior made of fiberglass, copper, stainless steel or bronze. The least expensive vaults are made of concrete and are reinforced with steel. This product helps maintain the surface of the garden by preventing cave-ins and protects the casket from outside or exterior elements.
An enclosed room or pit having an access opening in the top, side wall, or both. May be in a building, a separate above-ground structure, or underground.
An arched roof supported on its edges and reinforced, when necessary, by ribs.
a burial chamber (usually underground)
a burial chamber, buried in a shaft, which looks like a concrete box, designed to hold a casket
a ceiling of brick, stone, or concrete built in the principle of the arch
a large monolithic stationary concrete structure
an arch that helps support an aqueduct
an outer burial container that encompasses and protects a casket or urn when buried
Arched roof of a building or part of a building. Various forms exist: 1) barrel vault - an extreme development of the Roman arch (weight was carried equally by both walls); 2) cross vault where two barrel vaults cross and are divided into four segments with weight-bearing ribs each supported by a pilaster. Where the ribs meet at the apex is a keystone; 3) fan vaulting - rising from a polygonal structure and consisting of a concave cone radiating from each support; 4) domical vault - rising above a square structure and consisting of a section of a sphere whose diameter is equal to the diagonal of the square covered.
(1) A burial chamber which is underground or partly so. (2) A metal or concrete container for the casket.
A solid "container," usually made of concrete, to prevent leakage from the casket into the soil. Many insiders in the industry advise that a grave liner is sufficient and a vault does not really do what is purported to.
(English) In church architecture, the arched masonry roof.
An arched integral roof or ceiling. Vertical - Perpendicular to the horizon.
The palate or roof of the mouth.
An arched covering of stone or brick over any building or internal part of a building.
An arched roof, ceiling, or covering of masonry; an arched, underground chamber, used primarily for storage (such as a wine cellar) or as a burial chamber.
An enclosing structure formed by building a series of adjacent arches.
A burial chamber underground or partly so. Also includes in meaning the outside metal or concrete casket container.
Arched ceiling of stone or brick, sometimes imitated in timber or plaster.
The underground Metrorail station's main cavity bordered by the interior walls between the station and the external rock-bed.
A masonry roof or ceiling constructed on the arch principle. barrel or tunnel vault, semicylindrical in cross section, is in effect a deep arch or an uninterrupted series of arches, one behind the other, over an oblong space. In a cross-barrel vault, the main barrel (tunnel) vault is intersected at right angles with other barrel (tunnel) vaults at regular intervals. quadrant vault is a half-barrel (tunnel) vault. sexpartile vault is a rib vault with six panels. fan vault is a development of lierne vaulting characteristic of English Perpendicular Gothic, in which radiating ribs form a fan-like pattern. cross vault (or groin) is formed at the point at which two barrel (tunnel) vaults intersect at right angles. In a ribbed vault, there is a framework of ribs or arches under the intersections of the vaulting sections.
Underground chamber of interment
A space underground for electric cables, transformers and other parts of the underground electric system. (see illustration)
A concrete or metal container into which the casket is placed before burial at a cemetery. Most cemeteries require vaults because they stabilize the gravesite, preventing the earth from settling above the casket.
An arched ceiling constructed of masonry materials; the undersurface, or soffit, is usually curved. If the vault is generated from a series of pointed, rather than round, arches, it is called a groin vault.
A grave liner that completely encloses a casket or urn.
an arched work of masonry, forming the roofs over the casemates, galleries or other spaces. Among the types of vaults found at Fort Adams are: barrel, parabolic and groined vaults.
an arched structure, typically of masonry, forming the ceiling or roof of a building [image1] [image2
An arched brick or stone ceiling or roof. The simplest form is the barrel vault, a single continuous arch; the groined vault consists of two barrel vaults joined at right angles; a ribbed vault has diagonal arches projecting from the surface.
A Vault (French. voute, Italian. volta, German. Gewolbe), in architecture is the term given to the covering over of a space with stone or brick in arched form, the component parts of which exert a thrust and necessitate a counter resistance. In the case of vaults built under the level of the ground, the latter gave all that was required, but, when raised aloft, various expedients had to be employed, such as great thickness of walls in the case of barrel or continuous vaults, and cross walls or buttresses when intersecting vaults were employed.
Vaults are large underground bunkers that serve as a central part of the Fallout series. Built by Vault-Tec, these structures were each designed to keep 1,000 people safe from nuclear destruction and the effects of fallout and radiation afterward. They were not intended, however, to protect the entire population of the United States, as over 400,000 would be needed to provide safety to everyone.
