Tech/Engineering - Law: Patents, Trademarks, Copyright / sealing device (patent)
English term or phrase: bilge-shaped portion
My text is about a sealing device (used in the shaft sealing portions of various devices) having screw ridges shaped by combining a bilge-shaped portion and a straight portion.
I only find translation in the nautic field for "bilge" as "cale", "bouchain" and do not understand how a portion can be shaped like this. I you know another meaning for bilge, that can be used in this kind of technical text, do not hesitate to make proposals !
