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.

In the work the task of obtaining reliable relation for prediction of deflections of the castellated beams was put.
To reveal and quantify the possible reasons for excessive bridge deflections the parametric study of long-term behaviour of the motorway bridge across the River Vltava was carried out.
Approval came after its year-long field test completed in June 2012 that showed no notable defects, deflection or stress on the pipe buried with shallow cover and fill height depth of three to four feet.
When the planned excavation depth is increased temporarily after the completion of the support wall construction, the deflection and stability of the support wall may not satisfy the demands, so reinforcement measures should be taken to ensure the safety of the excavation.
Over the past decades, many researchers have investigated the problem of deflection of non-prismatic beams subjected to different boundary conditions.
For small deflections, the pipe cross section will remain approximately elliptical, and the vertical deflection [DELTA]y is roughly equal to the horizontal deflection [DELTA]x.
The finite element analysis using Sofistik software shows that a distributed concrete thickness reduces shell stresses, deflections and reinforcements.
The deflections were measured at midspan and load points using mechanical dial gauges of 0.
As the pavement became cracked and weaker, the deflections increased and became more variable.
An important question that needs to be considered in this research for membrane plate exchangers is how will flow channel spacing variations due to manufacturing tolerances or membrane deflections alter their performance?
After initial tests, it was found that plates with 1/4-inch and 5/16-inch deflections could be inserted into the 10-inch senior fitting, and additional tests were performed on 10-inch plates with [beta] ratios of 0.
