The degree of orientation, or anisotropy factor (AF), is computed as the difference between the principal values of (uu):
Beside paper--dye interaction (mainly, cross-section profile of raster element) our interest will also be focused on investigation of influence of anisotropy factor in our model which could be important for optimization of paper components initial mixture.
and anisotropy factor (g) of tissues and phantoms were determined by Monte Carlo simulation technique.

The degree of orientation, or anisotropy factor (AF), is defined as the difference between the principal values of (uu):
16, the anisotropy factor ranges from 0 for a random isotropic distribution of orientation, to 1 for the perfect domain alignment in the x-y plane.
Approximately 40 mm downstream from the injection gate, the anisotropy factor changes sign, indicating a flipping in bulk alignment from the filling direction to the transverse direction.
7b) again capture the qualitative features of the experimentally measured bulk anisotropy factor distribution (Fig.
8, the anisotropy factor ranges from 0 for an isotropic distribution of orientation to 1 for the case of perfect domain alignment in the x-y plane.
The severity of this orientation loss is dependent on the model parameters; for some parameter sets, the effect of the transverse stretching is sufficient, so that, on average, the orientation direction is hipped by 90[degrees], as revealed by a sign change in the centerline anisotropy factor.
Although a 1:4 sharp slit-expansion causes the centerline anisotropy factor to change sign, the drop in orientation is less severe for a 1:2 sharp slit expansion.
