German term or phrase: Schwingbruchfläche/Restgewaltbruchfläche
I am having trouble with the following paragraph about testing of springs:

An der Windungsaußenseite befindet sich eine fein strukturierte Schwingbruchfläche, die quer zur Flachmaterialachse orientiert ist (Biegeschwingbruch) und etwa zwei Drittel des Materialquerschnitts einnimmt (Bild 1). An die Schwingbruchfläche schließt sich die gröbere Restgewaltbruchfläche mit Scherlippen an.

It looks like a distinction is being made between a finely structured area of fracture due to oscillation and an adjacent area of fracture due to rougher forces??
Any help greatly appreciated.

Explanation:
You're pretty much there with your interpretation already.

The forces that affected the remaining third of the material were not necessarily rougher, though, but the screw (or similar object) you've been talking about simply has not bee strong enough to hold the connection once thw thirds of its diameter were gone as a result of an oscillation fracture. The rest just ripped off because whatever it held in place became too heavy for what little of its material (1/3 of the diameter) was left.
