English term or phrase: excavation
Hello!

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 "excavations". Does anyone have an idea?

Context:

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!
