A stroke with a racket in which the ball is struck with the racket over the head, moving in a downward motion; also called overhead stroke.
A shot hit much like a serve, when the ball is above the player's head, usually a smash. It's often used by a player at net or in the forecourt against a lob that hasn't been hit deep enough.
a hard return hitting the tennis ball above your head
In a bar code system, the fixed number of characters required for start, stop, and checking in a given symbol. For example, a symbol requiring a start/stop and two check characters contains four characters of overhead.
Framing, error control, addressing, idle code, or any other characters or bit sequences in a data transmission other than actual end-user data.
The bars and spaces representing the start, stop, function codes and check characters required by some symbologies. These increase the length of the bar code but do not affect the message content.

Short for overhead transparency, a plastic sheet used with an overhead projector to project onto a screen what you have written or drawn on the plastic sheet. PowerPoint can print transparencies, if your printer can handle them.
a transparency for use with an overhead projector
The memory used for header information in each memory block. From an applicationâ€(tm)s perspective, this is wasted memory. 16-bit Windows global allocations have a 24-byte overhead; Win32 HeapAlloc allocations have overhead of 16 bytes. SmartHeap moveable allocations have a 10-byte overhead. SmartHeap small allocations (less then 256 bytes) have 1 byte overhead. Larger SmartHeap variable-size allocations have a overhead between 2 and 4 bytes, depending on platform. SmartHeap fixed-size allocations have zero overhead.
In computer terms, that part of a file or other system which the computer needs for its own purposes and is not available for data. A record of a thousand bytes, for example, that had an overhead of two hundred bytes would have eight hundred left for data storage.
A performance measure defined here as the CPU percentage on a cluster host used by Network Load Balancing, consisting primarily of CPU filtering overhead and CPU transfer overhead. A portion of overhead contributes to latency.
The amount of total load you have placed on your Mac's CPU. The more operations you run, the more programs you have open, etc. the more overhead on your computer
There are four contributions to the overhead, , defined so that the speedup = number of nodes). The communication overhead and load balance contributions are also defined in this glossary. There are also algorithmic and software contributions to the overhead.
Time to prepare the spacecraft and instrument for an observation, e.g. detector heating, wheel positiong and spacecraft slews.
In computer jargon, the amount of storage or other resources required to accomplish some task. For example, an index to a full-text database might increase total storage requirements by 40 percent, which would be referred to as the index's overhead. (7/96)
Overhead is any effort that does not go to the core activities of the task but is still required in order for the people to perform it—a sort of “real world” cost of actually doing the work. For example, two people performing a task will require more effort than one person doing the same task: if the duration of a task is 12 days, it may require seven days for two people to finish it, because they need an additional day to compare and integrate their work. The tradeoff is that, while assigning two people to the task requires more effort, the task has a shorter duration.
The operating system activity required to perform a task.
The extra bits required when addressing, error correction, etc. are used. Overhead is also used to refer to the extra time needed for receivers and transmitters to key up (turn on) and for modems to synchronize.
Extra bits in a digital stream used to carry information besides traffic signals.  Orderwire, for example, would be considered overhead information.

The time spent by Puma recording and displaying a sample during data collection.
An appropriate object of genuflection. For maximum relevance, the overhead should be placed where the Cross was.
Catenary and contact wire of a suspended electrical distribution system.
The time that the computer spends keeping the system going, instead of working on somebody's program.
The distillation fraction removed as vapor or liquid from the top of a distillation column.
Surface area on recordable CD media that is not used for storing audio or data. The Lead-In and Lead-Out areas required for multi-session recordings take up a number of megabytes of disc storage space and are one form of overhead.
(computer science) the disk space required for non-data information (used for location and timing)
Overhead refers to electrical overhead conductors and equipment mounted on poles.
The information added to the users data to facilitate its transport through the network.
The load that an operating system incurs while sharing resources between user processes and performing its internal accounting.
