angle of deflection

angle of deflection

[′aŋ·gəl əv di′flek·shən]
(electronics)
The angle through which the electron beam in a cathode-ray tube is diverted from a straight path.
(ordnance)
The horizontal clockwise angle between the axis of the bore of a gun and the line of sighting when a gun is laid for direction.
(petroleum engineering)
In directional drilling with a whipstock or other deflecting tool, the angle at which a well is deflected from the vertical.

The depicted parameter [alpha] describes the current angle of deflection in degrees in relation to the direction of the main flow.
Longer switches do not have to deflect the blades as far (measured by angle of deflection) as short switches to close a given gap size between the blades.
Figures 2-6 show the time response of the transverse displacement, the angle of deflection, the slider position, the rotational angle and the contact force with adequate feedback gains [k.sub.1] = [k.sub.5] = 1, [k.sub.2] = [k.sub.6] = 0.2 , [k.sub.3] = [k.sub.7] = 16, [k.sub.4] = [k.sub.8] = 8 using try and error method.
After the larval midline was determined by a line drawn through the centers of the nerve cord and notochord, angles were measured from the center of the gut to determine the angle of deflection of the gill slits or the anus from of the larval midline.
where r is mutual distance of points C and H (during scanning) or C and T (during tracking); [[chi].sup.s.sub.c] is angle of deflection of UAV velocity vector during scanning the ground by the head; [[chi].sup.d.sub.c] is angle of deflection of UAV velocity vector during the passage from preprogrammed flight to tracking flight; and [[chi].sup.t.sub.c] is angle of deflection of UAV velocity vector during the flight tracking the detected target.
A separate detector system was set up to receive the deflected laser light and to record the angle of deflection. This would indicate how much oil was present in the water, which could then be used to trigger an alarm.
The outward deflection is represented by a positive angle of deflection in all instances, and vice versa.
Movement causes acceleration that produces deflection in the non-stationary electrode, resulting in a measurable change in the capacitance between the two plates that is proportional to the angle of deflection. The inclinometers are IP68 rated, with a temperature range of -30 to 70 [degrees]C.
As it happens, there is large separation between the average angle of deflection resulting from low-Z, low-density material in commerce, like food or plastic, and medium-density, medium-Z material like steel, and between the latter and high-Z, high-density material like tungsten, lead, or SNM.
In entering a roundabout, the designed angle of deflection forces motorists to bear to the right, counter clockwise, and safely merge into traffic.
The gain is studied as a function of the initial tilt angle [[beta].sub.0] angle of deflection [Chi] and irradiation conditions, including horizontal beam and diffuse components.
The standard version has an operational angle of deflection of up to 35 degrees.
