D.S.B. = Differential Shape Butted

There are conditions of use involving different stress distributions in the same section; this means that the lightness can be improved  simply by identifying the parts of the sections where the thicknesses can be reduced.

The thicknesses are asymmetrical in relation to the longitudinal axis, i.e. the thicknesses may vary in the same orthogonal section.
