French term or phrase: fringalage

This is in a technical document describing a test procedure for running in brakes for trucks.

"fringalage" is a type of noise produced by brakes during running-in indicating there is a defect of some kind.
It is the third in a list, the other two being broutement = grabbing, and crissement = squealing.

TIA for your help.
