angular displacement

[′an·gyə·lər dis′plās·mənt]
(physics)
A vector measure of the rotation of an object about an axis; the vector points along the axis according to the right-hand rule; the length of the vector is the rotation angle, in degrees or radians.

AVL/EXCITE software was used for the calculation with the AVL/EXCITE model refined in such a manner that the resonant engine speeds for 6PR bending stress measurement under full load condition agree with those calculated for the angular displacement about Y axis at No.7 journal center, [[theta].sub.y] shown in Figure 31 [13].
This implementation yielded angular acceleration results that were closer to that of the NAP than a 3a[omega] array, transformed peripheral linear accelerations to the COM better than the 3a[omega] array and equivalently to the NAP, yielded angular velocity data more accurate than the NAP, and provided angular velocity data which could be integrated into angular displacement data at higher accuracy than the NAP [24-25].
