transverse section definition

Transverse section (transverse section) is relative to the longitudinal section, which is perpendicular to the direction of the object and cut after the cut shape. Generally speaking, for an elongated object or a three-dimensional shape, the section obtained by cutting along a shorter direction (or vertically longer direction) is a transverse section. In ship engineering, the commonly used cross section is mid-cross section.
