German term or phrase: Absteckung
"Gefüge im Bereich der Aufreißung (aufgrund Abstreckung, kaltverformt)"

This is from a caption for a photograph which shows a cracked area on a moulded part with both life-sized and microscopic views. It shows a crack radiating toward the surface of the part. The "r" in Abstreckung is, I believe, a typo.
