German term or phrase:Kerbwicklung
The context is bending.
We are bending flat steel in a vise using a bending block.
Nur leicht an der Innenkante der Biegestelle anreißen, Bruchgefahr durch Kerbwicklung vermeiden!
Can you help?
Explanation: An Internet search did not provide any further insight unfortunately. Looking in Stoezlel’s Fachwb fuer Metallurgie und Giessereitechnik, you would find under Kerb: notch; Kerbaufweitung: notch opening displacement; Kerbduktilitaet: notch ductility; Kerbe: notch; Kerbeisen: cutter; kerbempfindlich: notch-sensitive; Kerbfaktor: (fatigue) notch factor, stress-concentration factor, Kerbschlagbiegeprobe: notched-bar impact (bend) test specimen; Kerbschlagbiegeversuch: notched-bar impact (bend) test; Kerbschlagfestigkeit: impact strength; Kerbschnitt: incision; Kerbspannung: notch stress; Kerbtiefe: depth of notch; Kerbverformbarkeit: notch ductility; Kerbwert: notch value; Kerbwinkel: notch angle; Kerbwirkung: notch effect; kerbzaeh: notch-ductile (This is of course not everything, but a good cross-section): Wicklung: is probably winding, wrapping or coiling. It is possible however that this might be a typing mistake and thus could be Kerbwirkung or Kerbentwicklung (development of notch) . It is really hard to say. Good luck!

Explanation: There is a very informative tutorial on Sheet Metal Forming at the site below, which I thought you might find helpful. www.me.umn.edu/~klamecki/Forming/materials.html
It contains a lot of information and good diagrams and explanations, as well as a section on bending.
