rounded edge
Explanation:
I am not totally certain whether this term is correct but it would make sense. In case of an oil spill from a transformer, it is important for the oil to flow easily to a collection ditch which is typically located at a level lower than that of the transformer. To facilitate the flow of oil into the ditch, the edge leading into the ditch is rounded.
