 German term or phrase: Hüllwert Ungünstige Betriebssituationen von Kühltürmen und damit höhere Kühlwasserabgaben der Ablaufkühlung ergeben sich bei gleicher Lufttemperatur wenn hohe relative Luftfeuchten auftreten. Aus der Anlage ergeben sich als obere Hüllwerte die in der Tabelle aufgeführten Obergrenzen der relativen Luftfeuchte. There are hardly any Google matches for Hüllwert, not even in German. What does it mean and does it have anything to do with envelope curves? (perhaps values along the upper envelope curve??). Thanks in advance for any ideas and suggestions!

 English translation:envelope curve Explanation:Your assumption is right. "Hüllwert" should be read as "Hüllkurve" Two curves are tangent to each other if and only if both curves share a common tangent line at a common point. The envelope curve of a set of curves Kp is an associated curve C such that the associated point Qp is on Kp, and C is tangent to Kp in point Qp. http://home.scarlet.be/~ping1339/curves.htm Eine Hüllkurve, auch Einhüllende, Envelope (englisch), Enveloppe (französisch) bezeichnet eine Kurve, die jede Kurve einer Kurvenschar in einem Punkt berührt. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hüllkurve--------------------------------------------------Note added at 1 hr (2009-02-18 00:08:36 GMT)--------------------------------------------------ergeben sich als obere Hüllwerte die in der Tabelle aufgeführten Obergrenzen der relativen Luftfeuchte may be understood as: The annexed table shows the max. admissible relative humidity values for cooling air, which can support complete cooling under full load conditions. These values drawn up results in an envelope curve.

Explanation:
i could imagine that they are talking about the temperatures of the Hülle or the cladding. its a guess.

envelope curve

Explanation:

Two curves are tangent to each other if and only if both curves share a common tangent line at a common point.
The envelope curve of a set of curves Kp is an associated curve C such that the associated point Qp is on Kp, and C is tangent to Kp in point Qp.

 Thank you everybody!

disagree  Vittorio Ferretti: ein "Wert" ist´keine "Kurve"

-> Wenn man wörtlich übersetzt. Dem Kontext nach ist es aber eine Kurve.
