Related Terms

CRYSTAL CONTROL

Control of the frequency of an oscillator by means of a quartz crystal unit.

OSCILLISTOR

A bar of semiconductor material, such as germanium, that will oscillate much like a quartz crystal when it is placed in a magnetic field and is carrying direct current that flows parallel to the magnetic field.

QUARTZ CRYSTAL MARINE CHRONOMETER

A quartz crystal clock intended for marine use. The degree of accuracy is such that it requires no chronometer rate, but can be reset electrically if necessary.

CRYSTAL CUTTER

A cutter in which the mechanical displacements of the recording stylus are derived from the deformations of a crystal having piezoelectric properties.

QUARTZ CRYSTAL CLOCK

A precision timepiece, consisting of a current generator of constant frequency controlled by a resonator made of quartz crystal with suitable methods for producing continuous rotation to operate time-indicating and related mechanisms.

PIEZOELECTRIC ELEMENT

A piezoelectric crystal used in an electric circuit, for example, as a transducer to convert mechanical or acoustical piezoelectric element piezoelectric gage signals to electric signals, or to control the frequency of a crystal oscillator.

PIEZOELECTRIC TRANSDUCER

A piezoelectric crystal used as a transducer, either to convert mechanical or acoustical signals to electric signals, as in a microphone, or vice versa, as in ultrasonic metal inspection.

COMPUTED ALTITUDE

  1. Tabulated altitude interpolated for increments of latitude, declination, or hour angle. If no interpolation is required, the tabulated altitude and computed altitude are identical. 2. Altitude determined by computation, table, mechanical computer, or graphics, particularly such an altitude of the center of a celestial body measured as an arc on a vertical circle of the celestial sphere from the celestial horizon. Also called CALCULATED ALTITUDE.

COHESION

That property of a substance that causes it to resist being pulled apart by mechanical means.

ENGINE CYLINDER

A cylindrical chamber in an engine in which the energy of the working fluid, in the form of pressure and heat, is converted to mechanical force by performing work on the piston. Also known as cylinder.
