Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Examination of broken parts
French term or phrase: matée
La partie centrale de la rupture qui est fortement matée n’a pas pu être exploitée.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.
The shaft looks to have been torn off if that helps, and the centre of the depression is "matée ".
TIA Chris.
