French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / railway track alignment
French term or phrase:gisement
In laying out tramway tracks: "les gisements d'entrée et de sortie seront parallèles. Le gisement au point d'inflexion (of a bend) sera perpendiculaire aux deux autres." I know the concept referred to but the English term escapes me at this point. TIA for your help.
