tilt angle

[′tilt ‚aŋ·gəl]
(electromagnetism)
The angle between the axis of radiation of a radar beam in the vertical plane and a reference axis (normally the horizontal).

tilt angle

An angle between the axis of an air camera and an aircraft's vertical axis. Normally, it is the angle at the perspective center between the photograph perpendicular and the plumb line. See tilted photograph.

Moreover, with high solar intensity after noon time and lower tilt angle 30[degrees], the liquid film covers the upper half from the evaporator causing the internal evaporator wall surface to dry-out (Geyser effect) [1,18] at the upper location, resulting in a sudden rise in the evaporator surface temperature.
The performance of the system is also tested against the tilt angle (O).

The goal of the present work is to describe this process and to find the lower limit of the swash plate tilt angle providing the developed axial piston hydraulic machine operability and experimental proof of theoretical computations.
In Section 3, we derive the lower bounds, low/high-SNR approximations of the system sum rate and the optimal BS antenna tilt angle.
In other words, we may verify the trend of the inclination of sensors by a tendency analysis, but we should not take every single value as a precise reflection of the tilt angle in this case.
It is shown from the Figure 6 that the flame tilt angle [theta] is remarkably enlarged in the cases with top vent open (Case A1-A4 and Case B1-B4), compared with the cases with top vent closed (Case C1-C4).
A technique to analyze the movements of the lower extremity joints during gait uses inertial sensors (MEMS) such as accelerometers which are placed in the body segment focused for measuring the acceleration along an orthogonal system to obtain the tilt angle with respect to a reference point.
The factors affecting forces on disk plow include type of soil, the bearing of disk, scraper type, tilt angle, disk angle, forward speed, depth, width of cut, soil density and others as reported by many studies (Sommer et al.
The size of the substrate dimension and the ground plane is optimized in order to achieve optimum beam tilt angle and similar gain in all beam-steered directions.
1 GHz, from the simulated results, the tilt angle of the xoz-plane is +20[degrees] and the gain is 4.
Tilt angle: An optimal tilt angle of roofs for integration of PV approximates the latitude of the location, which represents a compromise between summer optimal tilt angle (latitude -15[degrees]) and winter optimal tilt angle (latitude +15[degrees]).
