German term or phrase: beaufschlagend (mechanical)
A soil compacting device:
"mit einem ein Bodenkontaktelement beaufschlagenden Schwingungserreger"; also, "Ein Antrieb treibt einen Schwingungserreger an, der eine eine Bodenkontaktplatte beaufschlagende Schwingung erregt."
I've always been uncertain about this term. Sometimes (e.g. electrical contexts) I give "charge" for "beaufschlagen," but I am not sure if that works in this context. thanks for any input.

transfers or transmits the oscillations
Explanation:
The description fits a vibratory plate compactor.
These machines have an exciter to produce the mechanical vibrations (oscillations) which are then transferred/transmitted to the compaction plate at the bottom of the machine. They are used to compact the backfill of trenches or any other excavation.

thanks -- I'll have to reword a bit to use 'transfers' but it does seem to capture the meaning well.
