deflection

 [de-flek´shun]
a turning aside. In the electrocardiogram, a deviation of the curve from the isoelectric baseline; that is, any wave or complex.
H deflection the segment on an electrocardiogram that represents activation of the bundle of His.
intrinsicoid deflection measured on unipolar precordial leads, the interval from the earliest onset of the QRS complex to the peak of the last R wave, representing the arrival of the impulse under the electrode. Called also R peak time.

de·flec·tion

(dĕ-flek'shŭn), Do not confuse this word with deflexion.
1. A moving to one side.
2. In the electrocardiogram, a deviation of the curve from the isoelectric base line; any wave or complex of the electrocardiogram.

deflection

/de·flec·tion/ (de-flek´shun) deviation or movement from a straight line or given course, such as from the baseline in electrocardiography.

That is why different analytical approximate methods are elaborated for prediction of the castellated beams deflections.
Using this device to adjust one bearing assembly forward, and the other backward by the same amount, causes the center of the top roll to remain centered over the center of the middle roll, while the deflection of the top roll will "wrap" around the middle roll.
Any deflections were symmetrical about their corresponding horizontal and vertical axis and well within the allowable five percent maximum--no racking was observed.
Thus an inner support structure was installed to reduce the deflection of the toe and increase the stability of the excavation.
The MIT model estimates deflection based on a pavement's materials and structure.
Deflection refers to the small dent in the pavement that a car creates as it moves down the road.
The existing AR system (2) does not consider the deflection of heavy tools installed on the arm of the robot, (3) does not consider the deflection of robot joints caused by heavy tools, (4) does not consider the dynamic deflection due to the movement of the robot and stress distribution.
The Iowa Formula describes the interaction of the pipe and soil and the deflection that results from vertical loading.
The Newtonian fluid model is used first to study the effects of viscosity and flow rates on the deflection of melt streams.
In structural optimization of these shells an attempt is made to reduce overall tensile stress, deflection and reinforcement to the system while changing the limits of the structure's shape.
