A shoe or clog, as of iron, attached to a chain, and placed under the wheel of a wagon to prevent its turning when descending a steep hill; a drag; a skidpan; also, by extension, a hook attached to a chain, and used for the same purpose.
One of a pair of timbers or bars, usually arranged so as to form an inclined plane, as form a wagon to a door, along which anything is moved by sliding or rolling.
Act of skidding; -- called also side slip.
To check with a skid, as wagon wheels.
To slide without rotating; -- said of a wheel held from turning while the vehicle moves onward.
To fail to grip the roadway; specif., to slip sideways on the road; to side-slip; -- said esp. of a cycle or automobile.
The sliding motion of a bowling ball through the head area, just before it starts to pick up a roll. Exaggerated when the heads are very oily.
The amount the ball slides though the conditioner/oil.
Potentially dangerous vehicle movement resulting from the loss of traction between the tyres and road surface.
Motion of a vehicle when the wheels are locked or partially locked, or when the vehicle moves sideways as in a side skid
Support placed under cargo to make it easier to manoeuvre. Generally consists of two pieces of timber placed under cargo to allow a forklift to raise or slide the cargo.
one of a pair of planks used to make a track for rolling or sliding objects
a restraint provided when the brake linings are moved hydraulically against the brake drum to retard the wheel's rotation
an unexpected slide
slide without control; "the car skidded in the curve on the wet road"
apply a brake or skid to
move obliquely or sideways, usually in an uncontrolled manner; "the wheels skidded against the sidewalk"
a loss of proper control of a road wheel
A condition in which the tires are sliding over the road surface rather than rolling; usually associated with braking or turning.
A sliding rather than a rolling action of the tire across the road.
To lose tyre traction, causing the bike to slide off course.
occurs when one ore more tyres slip to a point where the driver no longer has complete and immediate control over the vehicle's speed or direction.
The portion of the bowling balls path in which the velocity of the contact point on the ball is greater than zero and the ball is therefore actually not rolling but is instead sliding down the lane.
To slip or slide on the road when tires lose their rolling grip.
A sliding of the aircraft to the left or right out of alignment with the desired flight path. A skidding turn results when centrifugal force is greater than horizontal lift, pulling the aircraft toward the outside of the turn.
In flying, a skid is a specific type of slip during a turn where the sideways movement of the aircraft is outwards from the centre of the turn. Pilots generally reserve the word slip only for inside slips in a turn (towards the centre).
