German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / Welding
German term or phrase:Wurzelrückfall
The first in a series of welding terms in a material testing specification for pipes (otherwise no context as such available). Any assistance welcome.
If anyone knows of a decent dictionary or glossary for welding and metallurgy in general it would also be very helpful (are there perhaps any relevant DIN standards in existence)? I have Freeman's "Taschenwörterbuch Eisen und Stahl" which is quite useful, though seems a bit outdated here and there.
I actually managed to track this down in the end - this is the English translation given in the European standard EN 25817 (Arc-welded joints in steel), which suffices completely here. Thanks to all of you for your time and help. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

Explanation: A shallow groove caused by contraction of the metal along each side of a penetration bead.
Definition on the first site below; second site has general info.
Other possibly helpful terms:
Incomplete root penetration - Failure of weld metal to extend into the root of a joint.
Incompletely filled groove - A continuous or intermittent channel in the surface of a weld, running along its length, due to insufficient weld metal. The channel may be along the centre or along one or both edges of the weld.
