[di′flek·shən]
(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.

The sleeper deflection can be highly variable in different sites depending on the track and loading conditions.
From these figures, it is observed that the increase in normalized distance B/D ratio decreases the deflection of pile head.
It was obtained the dependence of relative deflection [??] from [alpha] (where - [??], [??] are relative value) and the angle [theta] in relative Cartesian coordinates (X/r, Y/r, Z/r) with using methods of modeling.
If we look further at the material supplier's information, the modulus of the material was taken as a 1% secant modulus under common ASTM conditions including a deflection rate of 0.05 in./second.
where f is the function of the pressure on the sensor and the deflection of the shaft under test.
It can be found that, whether the jet pool is the unilateral deflection or bilateral deflection, the length of the potential core increases as the deflection angle increases.
They could get it done faster than with a sweep ell, and the product going into the silo was denser, which was a huge consideration." Ober estimates that offload times improve by up to 50 percent--ranging from 20 to 30 minutes with the deflection elbow design vs.
In this study, each AF05s was equipped with the RibEye Measurement Deflection System to provide greater detail on chest deflection for the crash events.
Based on the work of Asik [20] and Gibigaye work in the cylindrical axis system [18], the soil response according to the deflection [bar.w](x, y, z, t) at a given point inside the soil layer is equivalent to
The first behavior about the compliant actuator is that the bending configuration is symmetrical both at small and large deflections. For small deflections of a beam, often a linear relationship between angle, deflection, and force is enough to model the behavior, but with large deflections the problem clearly becomes nonlinear.
There are two types of bullet path deflection caused by Coriolis Effect: vertical and horizontal.
