Italian term or phrase: profilo di piede della rotaia
"...fino ad un punto in cui la porzione di pressione del clip non poggi più sul profilo di piede della rotaia"

Is this "foot profile of the rail"

I have seen various combinations of these words on EuroDicAutom, but none of them correspon exactly to the above phrase. Essentially, I assume by foot they mean the wide flange/base of te rail, and the word profile is reference to its section or shape.

Does anyone have access to a railway track laying glossary, i have found several railway gloassaries, but most refer to use, not to track laying and maintenance.
