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.

The dependent variables were the pelvis and gesture leg orientation angles at the events and the peak values: anterior pelvic tilt (AT), posterior pelvic tilt (PT), left lateral pelvic tilt (LT), left pelvic rotation (LR), right pelvic rotation (RR), hip flexion (FL), hip hyperextension (HE), hip external rotation (ER), and hip abduction (AB) (Fig.
Significant inter-group differences were observed for posterior pelvic tilt (IAM to EAM), left pelvic tilt (IAM to EAM), and anterior pelvic tilt (IAPT to IDM), with the skilled group showing more pelvic motions (Table 3).
The amount of pelvic tilt has been correlated to health-related quality of life (HRQoL) scores in spinal deformity literature, and spinal re-alignment aims to reduce SPT to less than 20[degrees].
Pelvic tilt is the angle between the sagittal axis of the pelvis and the floor, where positive values of pelvic tilt angle (angular velocity) correspond to an anterior tilt (tilting movement).
