 German term or phrase: Flächenschwerpunkt Berechnung der Zuhaltekraft 'Bei außermittigen Formnestern bzw. Flächenschwerpunkten wirkt die Auftriebskraft dezentral, wodurch die Belastung in den Säulen unterschiedlich ausfällt. Durch die dezentrale Krafteinwirkung ist die Belastung in dem Säulenpaar, welches dem Flächenschwerpunkt des Teils am nächsten liegt, deutlich höher als bei dem entfernter liegenden Säulenpaar."
