tilt

[tilt]
(aerospace engineering)
The inclination of an aircraft, winged missile, or the like from the horizontal, measured by reference to the lateral axis or to the longitudinal axis.
(electromagnetism)
Angle which an antenna forms with the horizontal.
In radar, the angle between the axis of radiation in the vertical plane and a reference axis which is normally the horizontal.
(meteorology)
The inclination to the vertical of a significant feature of the circulation (or pressure) pattern or of the field of temperature or moisture; for example, troughs in the westerlies usually display a westward tilt with altitude in the lower and middle troposphere.
(optics)
The angle between the plane of a photograph from a downward-pointing camera and the horizontal plane.

tilt

i. The angular movement of the offset of a camera axis about an aircraft's longitudinal axis.
ii. The angle at the perspective center between the photograph perpendicular and the plumb line or another exterior reference direction. In aerial photography, the tilt may be separated into the component angles, referred to as the fiducial axes, with the axis one, or more nearly, in the direction of flight. In an aerial camera orientation, a tilt in the direction of the x-axis is known as a j phi) tilt, and one in the direction of the y-axis is known as an ω (omega) tilt.

(5) Pelvic tilt (mm): pelvic tilt refers to the difference in heights of the sacral dimples DL-DR (dimple left-dimple right), in relation to the transverse surface (cross-section).
Subjective evaluation of the pelvic tilt yielded a positive result in 13 dancers (15.8%).
[R.sub.2] is used to realize the pelvic tilt about the Y-axis.
The patients showed an increased pelvic tilt in [[degrees]] as well as [mm], a decreased anterior pelvic inclination (dimples [[degrees]] as well as symmetry [[degrees]]), an increased trunk torsion [[degrees]], and a decreased lordotic angle [[degrees]] compared to the healthy controls (Table 2).
These sensors can measure foot position, leg angle, pedaling dead spots, pelvic tilt, power, power balance, speed, cadence and heart rate.
[19] Lateral pelvic tilt (side-to-side rocking) occurs naturally during cycling, while exaggerated at high speeds and increased fatigue.
An example is a pelvic tilt. Lie on your back on the floor with knees bent.
(Never apply pressure directly on the spine or the lowest part of the sacrum, known as the coccyx or tailbone.) Use your right hand in a gently curled fist or the flat of your hand to apply pressure to the sacrum, down and in, so that the pelvic area curves forward into a pelvic tilt. You may want to gently hold her hip with your left hand to prevent pushing her over Hold for thirty seconds and slowly release, and then repeat three or four times.
The exercise for pelvic repositioning involves a simultaneous contraction of the gluteals and hamstrings while relaxing the muscles of the back and performing a posterior pelvic tilt. This exercise is designed to encourage the pelvis out of an anterior tilt and into a more neutral position.
Lie down, bend your knees and create an anterior pelvic tilt. Then, create a posterior pelvic tilt.
At the final assessment the pelvic tilt had completely gone and misalignment of the vertebrae showed much improvement.
