German term or phrase: Sehnenverkürzung
Eine Reduktion der Glasdicken auf beispielsweise jeweils 6 mm führt zu einer Überschreitung des Verformungskriteriums. ...Anstelle des Nachweises der maximalen Durchbiegung ist ein Nachweis über den bei der auftretenden Sehnenverkürzung verbleibenden Glaseinstand möglich. Wird der Grenzzustand der Gebrauchstauglichkeit dementsprechend nachgewiesen, könnte die Glasdicke reduziert werden.

Chord (noun)
a straight line connecting two points on a curve
http://www.definitions.net/definition/chord

“The Chord is the distance straight across the curve, measuring straight across from point to point. This measurement should be made with a flat ruler. To measure the depth of the curve, take one half of the chord measurement and at that point measure to the top of the curve. With the chord and the depth, we can mathematically determine the radius.”
