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 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.
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].
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 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.
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.
A tall warehouse facility that uses vertical conveyors to raise or elevate grain, generally owned privately or by an agricultural cooperative, where grain is stored before being marketed. The term elevator often refers to any grain storage facility, even if the grain is not elevated. The country elevator is where a farmer delivers grain; a terminal elevator is a major transshipment facility; while an export elevator is at a port facility.
Elevator is a 1979 rock album by the Bay City Rollers. Having replaced longtime lead singer Les Mc Keown with Duncan Faure, the group shortened their name to simply The Rollers, and pursued a more rocking, power-pop sound than their previous work.
Elevator is a band from Moncton, New Brunswick. Started in 1994 as Elevator To Hell, a solo outlet for Eric's Trip lead man Rick White, the project eventually grew to include Eric's Trip drummer Mark Gaudet and White's wife Tara on bass. The band mainly produces hauntingly lo-fi psychedelia.
To dream of ascending in an elevator, denotes you will swiftly rise to position and wealth, but if you descend in one your misfortunes will crush and discourage you. If you see one go down and think you are left, you will narrowly escape disappointment in some undertaking. To see one standing, foretells threatened danger.
