Spanish term or phrase: puntos llave
This is a research article about the hysteretic properties of concrete subjected to cyclic loading. After looking on Internet, I have my doubts that the translation is key points. Here is the context:
El modelo que se propone para las curvas carga-descarga monotónicas supone que se conoce la curva envolvente tensión-deformación, correspondiente a la tensión de cambio del sentido del ciclo, y se basa en los *puntos llave* D, P y C de la figura 5.

this is a guess:

Could it possibly be "llaves de punto"??
