(computer science)
Encouraging a potential attacker of a computer system to direct the attack elsewhere.
(electronics)
The displacement of an electron beam from its straight-line path by an electrostatic or electromagnetic field.
(engineering)
Shape change or reduction in diameter of a conduit, produced without fracturing the material.
Elastic movement or sinking of a loaded structural member, particularly of the mid-span of a beam.
(ordnance)
Horizontal clockwise angle between the axis of the bore and the line of sighting.
The setting on the scale to compensate for deflection.
(petroleum engineering)
In oil well drilling, a change in the angle of a well bore.

## Deflection

The deformation or displacement of a structural member as a result of loads acting on it.

## Deflection

the vertical displacement of a certain point on the axis of, for example, a beam, arch, or frame, or on the medial surface of a shell or plate as a result of a deformation. The deformation may be caused, for example, by the action of a force or by temperature effects. The magnitude of the greatest possible deflection is usually normalized and may define one of the limit states of the structure. The maximum permissible deflections for various structures are given in the Construction Code.

## deflection

1. Any displacement in a body from its static position, or from an established direction or plane, as a result of forces acting on the body.
2. The deformation of a structural member as a result of loads acting on it.

If, in my judgment, the pelvis was adequate but dystocia was occurring because of malrotation, deflexion, or inadequate maternal pushing effort, then that was the time to intervene with forceps, as long as the vertex had reached at least +1 station.
