German term or phrase: Berstumfangsdehnung
Literal translation is "Burst circumference expansion". Is there another term for this?

Context is:

Die Berstumfamgsdehnungen der D4 Hüllrohren liegen underhald der HCW.
David C. Rumsey
English translation:expansion of circumference on bursting
Explanation:
I would confirm that Richard Ernst's Woerterbuch der industriellen Technik lists Berstdehnung as expansion on bursting, I would interpret the -umfangsdehnung as expansion of circumference, hence use the term above.

burst circumference


Explanation:
A lot depends on what HCW is!

If it is a circumference itself, then "burst circumference" would be correct here.

If it is some kind of elasticity parameter, then you need to adjust things somewhat. It would in any case be good to avoid the clumsy "burst circumference expansion".

The circumference expansion in case of bursting is within the HCW limits


Explanation:
Working within Ernst's definition, it looks as if HCW is the guideline for acceptable expansion, in case the pipes burst.
