Spanish term or phrase: hipótesis de manguito de hielo
El ACSR es muy usado en países templados y fríos donde se trabaja con la hipótesis de manguito de hielo, la cual puede afectar el comportamiento mecánico del aluminio. I have no idea how to say it in English. SOS!

English translation:"potential ice-sleeve conditions" ((see below))
Explanation:
The first clue here is the expansion of "ACSR," as explained at the web site of BICC General: "ACSR (Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced) is a composite construction with hard-drawn aluminum wires stranded around a galvanized steel core. This construction provides higher strength than AAC (All Aluminum Conductor), ...making these conductors suitable for longer spans and/or more severe weather conditions."

The second clue is to avoid falling into the trap of literalism, which would give you the following sentence: "Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR) is widely used in temperate and cold countries, in which the ice-sleeve hypothesis is at work, which can affect the mechanical behavior of the aluminum."

Instead, try this: "Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR) is widely used in temperate and cold countries in which potential ice-sleeve conditions are present, which can affect the mechanical behavior of the aluminum."

(An ice sleeve, of course, is a tube of ice that is formed around a cylindrical wire or conductor.)

NOTE: BICC General manufactures or supplies a comprehensive range of stranded aluminum conductors for transmission and distribution to international and UK specifications. -- Suerte!
