German term or phrase: Stahlschwingproben
Risse in Zimmerecken, an *Stahlschwingproben* und im Fahrbahnbelag folgen der Zugdreieckskontur.

Since the topic of this article is the "Zugdreieckskontur", I have no more context describing the "Stahlschwingproben". In the next sentence they are simply refered to as "Stahlproben". What could be meant here?

English translation:(steel) fatigue samples
Explanation:
"Schwingen" here is best translated by fatigue, as that is the aim of the tests - usually under cyclic conditions
