English term or phrase: Grain direction
det er ett bestillingsskjema. vet ikke om det er fremkalling av vanlig film, eller rtg. eller annet, men det står først "plate size (length, width, thicness)", og deretter "grain direction" (grain short, or grain long, or not applicable). Så er det rubrikk til å fylle i svar....
noen som har peiling på dette?

fiberretning
Explanation:
grain: The orientation of the fibers of paper, cloth, or board.

grain direction: The direction in which the greater number of fibers are oriented in paper or board. As applied to cloth, the term refers to the way the fibers are woven. In any case, the orientation of fibers tends to make the material stiffer in the direction parallel to those fibers, and more flexible and likelier to curl in the direction perpendicular to them. The former is the grain direction; the latter is the cross direction.
