* The principal vertical plane of symmetry of surface B is parallel to the HB plane passing through the point G = b/3a.
The two implementation processes represent very well the evolution of necking in the cross section of the specimen corresponding to the plane of symmetry. It should be noted that the cross section in the necking zone has a greater geometric change in the direction of smaller dimension.
Due to the symmetry of the split line two modes can propagate: one with electric field configuration of odd symmetry whereas the other mode has its electric field with even symmetry around any plane of symmetry of the split line.
To suppress this movement to the maximum extent, it is necessary to combine the surface of the melt with the plane of symmetry of the induction coil along its height.
This profile has only one plane of symmetry (at Z = 0).

The (010) planes of symmetry of these secondary Manebach twins are positioned left and right of the (001) plane of symmetry of the (010)-fourling faces.
In the case of thin-walled beams there exists the deflection in the plane of symmetry, transverse deflection and the warping of nodes.
It appeared that at the plane of symmetry, the orientation was transverse to the flow direction at least betwee n the surface layers.
Figure 3 shows the computed co- and cross-polarized patterns and measured data for the offset parabolic reflector in the plane normal to the plane of symmetry (that is, the yz-plane).
