fading

[′fād·iŋ]
(communications)
Variations in the field strength of a radio signal that are caused by changes in the transmission medium.
(graphic arts)
The loss of density on a photographic image.
(textiles)
A change in the color of a fabric produced by a natural or artificial agent, such as sunlight or an abrasive.

Fading

The effect caused by excessive exposure to sunlight or weathering, usually in terms of color or luster.

fading

fading

i. The variation of radio field strength caused by changes in the strength of the transmission medium's signal.
ii. The decrease in the amount of braking because of either overheating after prolonged and continuous or harsh braking or internal leakages in the system.
