Polbahn = Centrode


Explanation:
The Routledge German technical dictionary lists
"Centrode" for Polbahn, however, it does not render a translation for Polkurve. Sorry and good luck

Centrode


Explanation:
Langenscheidt's Fachwörerbuch Technik u.angewandte Wissenschaften lists centrode as an alternative for both. Polkurve can also be polar curve (math.), and the alternative given for Polbahn is path (locus) of instantaneous centre.
