- n. The act of laminating, or the state of being laminated; arrangement in layers or thin plates; specifically, in geology, a division of rock into layers or laminæ: nearly the same as stratification. A stratified rock may or may not be laminated. In the former case each stratum or bed is capable of being divided into thin layers or laminæ. Lamination is hardly possible except in rocks made up of fine-grained materials. The break or interval separating two strata is more evident, and very probably was of longer duration, than that which intervened between the deposition of two successive laminæ. Some English geologists use the term lamination with reference to the crystalline and eruptive rocks, making laminated structure the equivalent of tabular structure, where this has been the result not of stratification but of contraction during the process of cooling, or of some other cause connected with the formation of masses of igneous origin.
- n. In electricity, the constructing of the iron part of a magnetic circuit of thin laminæ or sheets of iron or steel, for the purpose of eliminating, in an alternating or rotating magnetic field, the induction of currents in the iron and the loss of power resulting therefrom. The lamination for this purpose must he at right angles to the direction in which an induced current would flow, but parallel to the direction of the magnetic flux.
- n. The process of laminating, joining together thin layers.
- n. Something made by laminating.
- n. topology A foliation of a closed subset of a manifold by subspaces of one dimension less.
- n. A layer of something that is laminated.
