The Spline is the 4" wide piece of 3/4" plywood glued and screwed underneath the seams of the plywood floor. They are item 22 on the diagram Aage posted. I marked them on the drawing for a couple of reasons:

Those frame cross members are 3/4" lower than the other ones to accommodate the splines.

They mark where the seams in the plywood floor are.

I wanted to remember where they were when I was planning out gray tank locations since they are wider than the frame cross members.
