anisotropic

Properties that differ based on the direction that is measured. For example, an anisotropic antenna is a directional antenna; the power level is not the same in all directions. Contrast with isotropic.

Qiao et al.[23] have pointed out that the rock mass which is not highly fractured and has only few sets of joint system usually behaves anisotropically. However, the mechanical properties directionality of highly jointed rock mass is usually ignored.
