Nevertheless, in sandy gravel sediments of subaqueous dunes, the cross-stratification mainly consists of grain flow deposits with little or no grain fall deposition on most of their lee faces (Kleinhans, 2004), suggesting that the sediment was delivered in pulses: rolling grain deposits for the coarsest sediments, however, are also common (Kleinhans, 2004).
But a stock blank sawed from a big slab of walnut by someone who knows how to lay out proper grain flow is quite strong, and it can certainly remain stable enough to allow a rifle to maintain zero come rain or shine.
The pivoting spout also functions as a grain saver, automatically pivoting upward to shut off grain flow from the unload tube when disengaged or being retracted.
A container with flow regulation was coupled to the conveyor belt to guarantee uniform grain flow in a thin layer throughout its length.
The 4000 ton presses at ENC utilize the continuous grain flow (CGF) forging process.

A forging has a longer life due to the internal grain flow of the material.
These treatments should be applied to the grain surface as treating the entire bulk can limit the grain flow.
The stock would be crafted from walnut of course, but one selected for ideal grain flow instead of flashy figure.
Testing was done to define the optimal forging die and obtain the grain flow required to form the desired flange.
To that end, the engineers defined the optimal forging die and calculated the grain flow needed to form the flange.
