    cast iron
  • an alloy of iron containing so much carbon that it is brittle and so cannot be wrought but must be shaped by casting

  • Firm and unchangeable

  • extremely robust; "an iron constitution"

  • Cast iron usually refers to grey iron, but also identifies a large group of ferrous alloys, which solidify with a eutectic. The colour of a fractured surface can be used to identify an alloy.

  • A hard, relatively brittle alloy of iron and carbon that can be readily cast in a mold and contains a higher proportion of carbon than steel (typically 2.0–4.3 percent)





    grilles
  • (grille) grill: a framework of metal bars used as a partition or a grate; "he cooked hamburgers on the grill"

  • (grille) wicket: small opening (like a window in a door) through which business can be transacted

  • (grille) grating that admits cooling air to car's radiator

  • A grating or screen of metal bars or wires, placed in front of something as protection or to allow ventilation or discreet observation

  • A grating at the front of a motor vehicle allowing air to circulate to the radiator to cool it





    floor
  • All the rooms or areas on the same level of a building; a story

  • A level area or space used or designed for a particular activity

  • shock: surprise greatly; knock someone's socks off; "I was floored when I heard that I was promoted"

  • The lower surface of a room, on which one may walk

  • the inside lower horizontal surface (as of a room, hallway, tent, or other structure); "they needed rugs to cover the bare floors"; "we spread our sleeping bags on the dry floor of the tent"

  • a structure consisting of a room or set of rooms at a single position along a vertical scale; "what level is the office on?"
