French term or phrase: le bras de levier à l’angle d’envahissement
"le bras de levier à l’angle d’envahissement hf = x.xxx m" I can't show this here, but the "f" is a subscript.

My provisional translation of this is "the arm at the down-flooding angle", but I suspect this is not correct. I don't know whether the writer has simply omitted "de redressement", as the two previous items in this list of data that can be derived from a graph shown elsewhere are:

"le bras de levier de redressement maximal = x.xxx;
l'angle de gîte correspondant au bras de levier de redressement maximal = xx.xx"

Explanation:
If you have a GZ curve (curve of statical stability), then the "bras de levier" is the "bras de levier de redressement". In fact GZ = bras de levier de redressement.

If you get into this, your next read will be on negative stability and the "point of vanishing stability".

P.S. "hf" is no doubt the height of the freeboard.

For me, the "bras de levier" in question is the GZ, thus the "bras de levier de redressement" and that in context, the writer left it out probably because to him it goes without saying. ;-)
