bilateral symmetry the configuration of an irregularly shaped body (such as the human body or that of higher animals) that can be divided by a longitudinal plane into halves that are mirror images of each other.
radial symmetry that in which the body parts are arranged regularly around a central axis.

An axi-symmetric mesh was generated in order to reduce the number of control volumes that would be needed to model the full three-dimensional domain of the capillary.
The axi-symmetric code was used rather than a 3-D code, because much smaller cell sizes could be used while making use of reasonable computing facilities.
Axi-symmetric instability occurred at low DDR and low BUR, while non-axi-symmetric instability occurred at low DDR and high BUR.
Axi-symmetric models and "pieces of pie" were used in optimization; half latches confirmed the findings.
