One who, or that which, raises or lifts up anything.
A cage or platform (called an elevator car) and the hoisting machinery in a hotel, warehouse, mine, etc., for conveying persons, goods, etc., to or from different floors or levels; -- called in England a lift; the cage or platform itself.
A muscle which serves to raise a part of the body, as the leg or the eye.
An instrument for raising a depressed portion of a bone.
A movable plane or group of planes used to control the altitude or fore-and-aft poise or inclination of an airship or flying machine.
Rear of the horizontal stabilizer, used to control the angle of the nose.
Tool used for lifting tissue
A movable control surface - usually on the horizontal stabilizer - that's used to control a model's pitch attitude.
Moveable surface which controls pitch of aircraft
horizontal flap on the tail which is used to move the plane up and down
A movable, horizontal surface that pivots up and down to control pitch
the moving section at the rear of the horizontal stabilizer that controls the pitch of the airplane.
An airplane's elevator control allows the airplane to rotate about its pitch axis. Report this Word See also: Pitch Axis Added by: mkranitz
a movable hinged panel along the back edge of an aircrafts tailplane. When both strips swivel up, the aircraft tilts tail-down and vice-versa
Control surface hinged to the trailing edge of the tailplane to provide longitudinal control. By raising the elevators the tail is depressed and the nose raised, and vice versa.
An apparatus for hoisting loads. A lift. The term often includes the entire hoisting apparatus: i.e., the shaft, cage, and motor.
A control surface, usually on the trailing edge of the horizontal stabilizer, which is used to control the pitch attitude of an aircraft. Movement of the elevator will force the nose of an aircraft up or down.
A movable surface on the trailing edge of a canard or ram wing that can be adjusted to direct the airflow.
An instrument used to lift a tooth or piece of bone. e-levo, to lift up)
A small control surface hinged to the rear of the horizontal stabilizer and used to tilt an airplane up or down.
This is another airplane term, but is easier than saying "cyclic forward / back." The elevator is what pitches the plane forward or back, to dive or climb, but does not really exist on a helicopter.
lifting device consisting of a platform or cage that is raised and lowered mechanically in a vertical shaft in order to move people from one floor to another in a building
the airfoil on the tailplane of an aircraft that makes it ascend or descend
a cage suspended on ropes that moves up or down a vertical shaft depending on the whims of the people in it
a lift and a cell phone is a mobile for instance
a lift, the (car) trunk is the boot, gasoline is petrol, and so on
an admirably effective Faraday cage
a platform, either open or enclosed, used for lifting people or freight to upper floors within a building
any hinged surface that provides the plane with the ability to climb or dive
the moveable control surface on the trailing edge of the horizontal stabilizer that causes a change about the pitch axis
Band with buckets attached for lifting stock.
The hinged control section of the tailplane, used to control pitch.
The horizontal control surface on the tail of the airplane that controls pitch. By moving the control wheel forward or aft the pilot moves the elevator and hence lowers or raises the nose.
a hinged, horizontal surface that controls the pitch of an aircraft
Elevator is the term used to describe a plane's horizontal control surface on the tail. This surface enables a plane to pitch upwards or downwards. When an elevator surface moves upwards, the tail moves downwards (the nose of the plane then points up) and vice-versa. Without an elevator, it is hard to control the altitude of a plane as you can't control the rise and fall of the nose of the plane. The German word for elevator is Hohenruder [High-rudder].
Controls the pitch of the plane, they're located at the rear of the horizontal stabilizer.
The control surface located along the horizontal stablizer at the back of the aircraft. It controls the pitch of the aircraft (up or down). See Figure 3.
The hinged control surface functions as an elevator, which you adjust to control the airplane's pitch axis. Pulling the transmitter's control stick toward the bottom of the transmitter adjusts the elevator upward, and the airplane begins to climb. Push the control stick forward, and the airplane begins to dive.
The elevator is used on an aeroplane to control the pitch. Applying up-elevator will generate lift on the underside of the tailplane surface causing the tailplane to move downwards. The effect will be for the angle of attack of the will to be increased and hence generate more lift. The overall effect causing the aeroplane to climb. At low speeds the elevator will not work. During ground taxiing manoeuvres the elevator may be used to stop the nose of the aircraft pitching into the ground, this will rely on the thrust from the aircraft being directed by the tailplane. See also: Servo.
A movable horizontal surface, usually at the tail of the aircraft, that causes the front of the aircraft to pitch up and down.
A control surface at the rear (or sometimes at the front) of an aeroplane. It either increases or decreases lift at one extremity of the aeroplane, and so causes the nose to come up or point down. Originally called the "horizontal rudder" or "equilibriator".
Hinged control surface located at the trailing edge of the horizontal stabilizer, which provides control of the airplane about the pitch axis and causes the airplane to climb or dive. The correct direction of control is to pull the transmitter elevator control stick back, toward the bottom of the transmitter, to move the elevator upward, which causes the airplane to climb, and vice versa to dive.
Hinged horizontal surface at the rearmost part of the tailplane which provides longitudinal control in the pitch axis.
the part on the tail that helps the aircraft maintain level flight and adjusts the aircraft's pitch; the elevator controls the airplane's nose, tilting it upward or downward
A control surface hinged to the back of the tailplane that controls climb and descent.
A hinged control surface connected to the back (trailing) edge of the horizontal stabilizer. Moving the elevator makes the plane climb or dive.
Movable control surface to govern aircraft in pitch
On an aeroplane, the elevators are a control surface usually on the trailing edge of the horizontal stabilizer. The elevators are used to control pitch.[ edit] Term Definition
Suspended car or cage, attached by cables to a machine to move it, which is used for hoisting or lowering people or things
An elevator is a transport device used to move goods or people vertically. Outside North America, elevators are known more commonly as lifts. Other languages may have loanwords based on either elevator (e.g.
