Tech/Engineering - Aerospace / Aviation / Space / Turbojet Patent
French term or phrase: Congés
I am not sure what English term to use for "congés" as used in this text. The text is the description of an invention for a Turbomachine, such as an Aircraft Turbojet Engine or a Turboprop Engine (this is the title of the patent).

It would be best to read the following context to understand what the authors are describing and to understand how they are using "congés". I found a definition of "bead", but am not sure that is what is best. The context includes all the incidences of "congés" used in the patent. I surrounded the incidences with brackets.

Any ideas or help would be very much appreciated.

De plus, le distributeur de turbine peut être sectorisé, une lamelle et/ou un capot s'étendant circonférentiellement le long de chaque secteur de turbine.
[0029] En outre, les extrémités libres des rebords peuvent comporter des [congés], la lamelle présentant des zones en creux épousant les formes des extrémités libres des rebords.
Les ressorts 18 sont montés autour de vis ou de plots 24 fixés dans la base 22a du capot 22.
[0052] Les extrémités libres des rebords 7 et/ou 14 comportent des [congés]. La lamelle 17 peut s'étendre uniquement axialement (forme de réalisation de la figure 9) ou comporter des zones en creux 25 épousant les formes des extrémités libres des rebords 7, 14 présentant des [congés] (forme de réalisation de la figure 8).
[0053] La présence des [congés] permet d'éviter toute détérioration des lamelles 17.
[0054] On notera que, dans la forme de réalisation de la figure 9, les lamelles 17 autorisent un grand déplacement axial de la chambre de combustion 1 par rapport au distributeur 2, sans pénaliser les performances des moyens d'étanchéité 16.
La présence de zones en creux 25 permet de mieux supporter un décalage radial entre les rebords 7, 14 et donc un léger pivotement de la lamelle 17 autour des extrémités présentant les [congés].

Note to reference poster
Asker: I would like to give you points and think it would be good to post this word in the glossary as I am sure others might have difficulty translating it. Could you post your answer so I could give you the Brownie points? Thanks very much for your help!

agree  B D Finch: Montague's dictionary is, in my view, very poor indeed and I regret having wasted my money on it. Nonetheless, in this case he is right.
