Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / Metal testing
German term or phrase: Mißbrauchsbereich
The context is materials testing for drive shafts.
"Dieser Test dient der Fertigungsanalyse im Missbrauchsbereich."

I assume it's something along the lines of a high-stress test, but I'd like confirmation or a better term for this.
Thanks, Kevin

Explanation:
I would say you are correct about high stress test, a.k.a. testing to destruction. I well recall the drive shaft on a certain make of touring coach not liking high gears and low revs!! The target term is an alternative.

agree  maat ka re: it is not about misapplication but about the deformation and about the weakest area in the shaft that becomes most deformated. Look for "stress-strain curves of metals" on the web
