German term or phrase: etw. nach unten abdecken
"Die Bedingungen nach AD-Merkblatt S4 [4] werden eingehalten.... Dies deckt ebenfalls den Werkstoff-Nr. 1.4435 mit einem Festigkeitskennwert von Rp0,2 = 210 MPa und Werkstoff-Nr. 2.4819 mit Rp0,2=280MPa nach unten ab."

This is taken from a "Festigkeitsbewertung" for a flange made from various materials. I'm having trouble understanding the meaning of the expression "dies decket...nach unten ab". Any ideas?

to define a minimum value

A guess, really, but it sounds like a standard that defines a minimum value for ... whatever.
