 Spanish term or phrase: flecha de haz The term is the distance between the edges of a curved plate. If the curve is an exact half-circle, it would be the diameter, but this is the general term for non-circular curves.
 sag Explanation:If the metal plate is held horizontally at the edges the centre will be lower than the edges because of the 'sag' (the plate takes on the form of a catenary). In geometrical terms, the sag (flecha) is the maximum distance measured perpendicularly between the chord (cuerda), which is a straight line joining the edges of the plate, and the arc (arco) representing the surface of the plate. But I have no idea what 'haz' means in your context. Maybe the word shouldn't even be there ... ?
