Demi-berceau (semi-barrel vault)

This type of vault has the same cross section across its entire length: a quarter circle.
These vaults are sometimes used to cover the bas-côtés (aisles) or the tribunes.
The picture shows one of the aisles in the Saint-Ferréol in Curgy.
See also voûte en demi-berceau (synonym).
