Discontinuity

When I ask people in the welding field what a “discontinuity” is?, I am usually met with looks of confusion and the only words the speak is….
defect.

A quick google search reveals:

noun
a distinct break in physical continuity or sequence in time.
“there is no significant discontinuity between modern and primitive societies”
a sharp difference of characteristics between parts of something.
plural noun: discontinuities
“changes in government have resulted in discontinuities in policy”
synonyms: disconnectedness, disconnection, break, lack of unity, disruption, interruption, lack of coherence, disjointedness
“close examination revealed a discontinuity in the grain pattern”
