French term or phrase: degres d'accompagnement / imposition
The context is some very technical data on aircraft parts, in this case 'belly fairings'. They are being tested with various pressure loads. There is not very much expanatory context, so I will list how the terms appear, which is merely in a list:

Nombre de points de definition analytique de la structure

Points support de degres d'accompagnement

Points support de degres d'imposition

Points sans degres de liberte associes

Degres d'accompagement avec second membre

Degres d'accompagnement sans second membre

As you can see, the text also refers to degrees of freedom - which is certainly a technical term appropriate to this context. However, although I suspect that literal translations are probably what is required here (i.e. degrees of accompaniment/imposition' I can find no references to back this up. I have tried googling the terms separately and altogether, but to no avail. Has anyone come across such terms in a similar technical context?

Sorry - out of my "depth" here. Suggest you contact an aero-engineer for a read-through and the pukka terminology..
