French term or phrase: conditions de blocages parasites
Coming to the end of my large stress analysis text, thank goodness, but am not sure about this term in a section about CALCULATION OF RUPTURE MECHANICS PARAMETERS BY THE FINITE ELEMENTS METHOD.

Le choix des parties courantes de la structure, au bout desquelles sont appliqués en général les conditions aux limites et certains chargements, est également un point important.
Hormis le cas où la géométrie étudiée impose une longueur précise de ces parties de la structure, on veillera à les prendre d'une longueur suffisante afin d'éviter d'introduire des **conditions de blocages parasites**.

Whilst I can translate it literally, I wanted to check with the experts.

Many thanks

It appears to me that what is intended in the oiginal is more the actual interference than the conditions for it.
