German term or phrase: Strömungshindernis
In a DE patent relating to a Rock Drill Bit:
"Somit ändert sich, ohne Verminderung der Dauerwechselfestigkeit des Schafts, bezüglich des längs der Wendelnuten geförderten Materials die geometrische Form bzw. Position der, ein Strömungshindernis ausbildenden, Nutverstärkung. ... Vorteilhaft nimmt der längs der umlaufenden Wendelnut strömungshindernde Rippenquerschnitt ... der Verstärkungsrippe ab."

Can anyone provide a clue as to what is meant by the Strömungshindernis and strömungshindernde in this context.

Many thanks in advance for your help!

flow obstruction
Explanation:
I first thought of "flow resistance" but that would be more apt for electricity.

"flow hindrance" could also serve, but is a little less determinate than obstruction. The context speaks of a real obstruction (Nutverstärkung).

flow resistance


Explanation:
"Flow resistance" is specific for the hydraulic domain. It can also be used in the earth oil (drilling, withdrawal, transportation and treatment) domain.
