Aggregate describing foliated masses that are somewhat spherical and rotate about a center; appearing like a rose (rosette). Also used to describe a form of banding where the bands are circular, forming rings about a central point.
general name for any spacing scheme in millefiori weights which features concentric circles of canes placed around a central cane or cluster of canes. Concentric weights ate either "open" (circles spaced relatively far apart) or "close" (circles close together), or "spaced" (millefiori canes set equal distances apart in vaguely defined concentric circles).
A searchcoil configuration using one or more transmit and one receive windings having unequal diameters aligned on a common center; most recently arranged on the same plane and called coplanar concentric.
A central core surrounded by one or more layers of helically wound strands in a fixed round geometric arrangement. The direction of lay for successive layers may be reversed or remain the same. When the lay for successive layers remains the same, the lay length shall increase with each successive layer. The standard direction of lay of the outer layer is left hand.
Concentric objects share the same center, axis or origin with one inside the other. Circles, tubes, cylindrical shafts, disks, and spheres may be concentric. Concentric objects do not have the same radius.
Used to describe the part of a repetition in which the muscle group works against gravity, usually contracting the muscle (such as lifting a weight). This part of a repetition is also commonly referred to as 'the positive'.
The lifting phase of an exercise, when the muscle shortens or contracts. For example, When you lift the weight in a bench press, press-ing it from your chest to the lock-out position, that's the concentric, or "positive," phase of the exercise.
