See Drip Loops.
A circle, cycle, story, metaphor or representation that goes back to its own beginning, so that it loops back (feeds back) onto itself. An open loop: a story left unfinished. A closed loop: finishing a story. In strategies: loop refers to getting hung up in a set of procedures that have no way out, the strategy fails to exit.

Small holes or slots in a building through which weapons could be fired.

Hydronic radiant systems heat a home by circulating hot water through tubing placed in evenly spaced layouts under the finished floor of the home. There are limits to the length of a tube that water can be efficiently pumped through. Warmboard uses1/2" I.D. tubing. It is accepted hydronic practice to limit the length of any single circuit of 1/2" tubing to less than 350 feet. Each of these circuits is called a loop. Most homes will have their floor area heated by a varying number these loops.
