 German term or phrase: Kreisfläche In a patent relating to Ankerbolzen/Befestigungen: "Die geringfügige Verminderung der Zugfestigkeit durch die mittel- bis starkwandige Kreisringfläche bei Rundprofilen ist vertretbar bzw. bei gleichem Gewicht des Befestigungsmittels einfact kompensierbar." Any ideas for Kreisfläche as opposed to Kreisringfläche in this context? Thanks very much! Harold
 circular area Explanation:"KreisRINGfläche" in your text is "ring area". Imagine the sectional area of a pipe which is cut. It looks like a ring. The thinner the wall of this pipe, the less the pipe's tensile strength. Naturally the tensile strength of a pipe (even a thick-walled one) is not as high as that of a round bar.
