English term or phrase:mateable convex and concave curved
Hier geht es um mögliche Formen für Nuten. Mir bereitet dieses "mateable" Schwierigkeiten,
Ja, genau darum geht es hier. Es geht um V-förmige Schienen und Nuten, die ineinandergreifen. Den Begriff
mateable hatte ich allerdings noch nie gehört und auch nicht im "Ernst" gefunden. Danke 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: Greco's answer looks good. I agree that the word "curved" need not be translated. Zusammenstecken would be another possibility. - It is often used together with plug and socket fittings but also often with Nut und Feder Verbindungen as at this site: - http://www.bau-markt.de/sidm/ausgaben/9901/neu.htm - here they are referring to wood but the word Zusammensteckbar is also used for other materials at other sites.
