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.

Also performing well throughout the tournament was Kendall Williams who scored 40 points, dished out nine assists, had seven steals, three deflections, and one loose ball recovery and she blocked one shot.
The velocity signature was further integrated to produce the vertical deflections. Figure 9 shows an example of the vertical sleeper deflection profile calculated from the acceleration data.
With the increase of loading cycles, the midspan deflection and tensile steel strain of the specimens increased simultaneously.
As shown in Figure 9, as the slope angle increases, the lateral deflection of the pile head increases significantly, and this trend becomes much more obvious with the increase of the lateral load.
Caption: The vortex chamber of the HammerTek deflection elbow protrudes partially beyond the 90[degrees] flow path, causing a sphere of material-in-air to rotate in the same direction as the air stream that powers it, gently deflecting incoming material around the bend without impacting the elbow wall.
6, a), then bandwidth 2b grows with increasing of contact pressure and, therefore, surface deflection d.
Again, assuming there are not any unusual conditions that this bar will experience in application, the engineer should have a very low degree of confidence that the calculated deflection will be the same as would be seen in application.
The deflection of the core axis can be calculated as follows:
(3) For the jet pool with bilateral deflection, the process of mixing between flow jet and ambient water less affected by the side walls, the oscillations have enough conditions to produce vortexes, if the deflection angle is large enough.
The firm initially specified the deflection elbow to reduce wear and downtime, but now also finds that the component reduces degradation and dust by preventing material impact.
The RibEye Multi-point Deflection Measurement System [3] was installed into both AF05s in the hope of enabling improved resolution for chest deflection.
He concluded that the effect of foundation inertia on the central deflection of the finite plate is not considerable.
