Definitions for "Helix"
A nonplane curve whose tangents are all equally inclined to a given plane. The common helix is the curve formed by the thread of the ordinary screw. It is distinguished from the spiral, all the convolutions of which are in the plane.
(n) A 3-D curve characterized by a constant rate of curvature about two dimensions and a constant linear translation in the third. Threads on screws and bolts are helical and are classified as being either right- or left-handed.
A spiral-wound wire used as a hinge or attaching device.
A caulicule or little volute under the abacus of the Corinthian capital.
the small volutes under the abacus of the Corinthian capital.

Where the track turns and either ascends or descends simultaneously.
A particular rigid left- or right-handed arrangement of a polymeric chain, characterised by the number of strands,the number (n) of units per turn and its pitch (p), the distance the helix rises along its axis per full turn. Examples of single-stranded helices are the protein helices: -helix:n = 3.6, p = 540 pm; 310-helix: n = 3.0, p = 600 pm; -helix: n = 4.4, p = 520 pm. See also double helix.
A sharp turn, often more than 360° and banked heavily. Superman has two, the first being at an angle and the second being relatively level with the ground.
