Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial
English term or phrase: ovality/ovalness
I found this definition of ovality in http://www.futuraind.com/glossary.htm: "Deviation from a circular periphery, usually expressed as the total difference found at any one cross section between the individual maximum and minimum diameters, which usually occur at or about 90 degrees to each other. Since ovality is the difference between extreme diameters, it is not expressed as plus or minus".
Is there any one single word for ovality/ovalness in Spanish?
Thanks in advance
