French term or phrase: retreint
it's in the car construction industry. I guess it's like compression but I am not sure. Something to do with the force exerced on the metal sheet when you bend it a certain angle..
Talking about angles, what are the proper terms for (angle saillant, angle rentrant...)
Thanks a lot for your help...

concave angle& convex angle


Explanation:
angle saillant = (GL) salient angle

angle saillant = (RTF ceramics) aris

angle saillant = (EU) external angle

angle rentrant = (GL) re-entrant angle angle rentrant = (RTF) reflex angle
angle rentrant = (EU) internal angle

La partie convexe est nommée angle saillant la partie concave angle (Hachette) = Convex and concave angle

Could it be a corner and not an angle?
