English term or phrase: swerve sections

The term appears in the maintenance description for slab tracks, the text specifically talks about possible defects of the track rails. I don't really know how to translate "swerve sections". Does anyone have an idea?


Many of these defects (depending of their extent) do not require replacing of the rails but standard repair measures.
The typical damages of this kind are:
Slight burrs
Slight swerve sections
Slight excavations
Slight flakings
For further details of possible rail defects refer to the respective UIC leaflet.

Thank you very much in advance!
