  Angle - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The first concept was utilized by Eudemus, who regarded an angle as a deviation from a straight line; the second by Carpus of Antioch, who regarded it as the interval or space between the intersecting lines; Euclid adopted the third concept, although his definitions of right, acute, and obtuse angles are certainly quantitative.
A spherical angle is a particular dihedral angle; it is the angle between two intersecting arcs on a sphere, and is measured by the angle between the planes containing the arcs and the centre of the sphere.
The angle between a line and a curve (mixed angle) or between two curves (curvilinear angle) is measured by the angle between the line and the tangent at the point of intersection, or between the tangents to both curves at their common point.

The dihedral angles are not all the same, because the polygons are not all identical.
Hence, dihedral angles between faces with fewer sides ought to be shallower (dihedral angle closer to 180 degrees).
So the angles we're looking for are hexagon-decagon: 142.62 degrees square-decagon: 148.28 degrees hexagon-square: 159.095 degrees It makes sense that the square/hexagon dihedral angle is is the largest, because the square and hexagon have the fewest sides, and that the hexagon/decagon dihedral angle is the smallest, by the reasoning above.

Alternatively the dihedral angle decreases moving from the root to the tip over a first portion of the span of the blade, said first portion being about 50% of the total span and then gradually increases for the remainder of the span of the blade.

 Woodworkers Journal eZine - Web Surfer's Review
Yet to establish the dihedral angle you need to look down a pyramid from its upper point along the arris of the intersecting sides to the bottom corner and measure the angle the sloping faces of the planes form at the bottom corner.
In a pyramid where the sides lean in from the vertical at 60° the dihedral angle is 104.48° (with a miter angle of 52.24° to join them), and the angle that the triangular sides edges rise from the base line is 63.43°.
To dovetail a pyramid type structure of this type with the angles I detailed, as in a butler's tray, you have to rake the dovetails and the rake is established by the sum 180°- 104.48°= 75.52°.

The spherical angle at the intersection P (or P') is equal to the plane angle AOB which lies in the plane of the equatorial circle GABH.

The position is characterized by the dihedral angle H-C-C=O. Numerical simulations enable us to calculate the partial charge on the hydrogen as a function of the dihedral angle (Graph 4.1).
Unfortunately the shape of the graphs describing the energies and the partial charge on the proton as a function of the dihedral angle depends on the types of the carbon alpha to the carbonyl.
The first atom of the dihedral angle in the second structure is a carbon, because it is smpler to describe the variation in this way.

From the fourth atom onwards, a distance, an angle and a dihedral angle are required to define the position.
The last three numbers on each row show the definition path: for carbon 4 the distance is to atom 1, the angle is 4-1-2, and the dihedral angle 4-1-2-3.
In this case the dihedral angle is the same as what chemists call the torsion angle.

Further, a dihedral angle between each pair of adjacent triangles is determined and associated with the VRC bit.
The optimal dihedral angle is chosen so as to minimize the number of errors in predicting the nature of the transition between adjacent triangles based on the dihedral angle between the adjacent triangle.
Next, exception data are generated by comparing the dihedral angle for each pair of adjacent triangles to the optimal dihedral angle to predict a VRC bit, and noting any errors within the exception data.

This means that algorithms that operate on dihedral angles to achieve their goals will normally require a way to modify the cartesian coordinates when dihedral rotations are performed, to reflect the new atomic positions.
A more compact representation of the variables of the problem, since the dihedral angles require less space than the (x,y,z) coordinates of each atom (the protein topology requires the values of the bond lengths and angles anyway, so the total amount of numbers to store is comparable).
The two rotations are a rotation around the dihedral bond by the dihedral angle and a rotation around an axis perpendicular to the bond angle, by the bond angle.

The dihedral angle is, of course, the angle made between the outside plane of the hull and the “water line”.
A constant dihedral would be best described as, forgive me, a “true” V. A variable dihedral would be a hinged or folded V with two or more different angles to the hull.

 R/C Soaring: Spiral Stability Augmentation by Gyro
Models with substantial dihedral such as rudder and elevator sailplanes counter this effect by their tendency to yaw outboard in circular flight.
This yaw in combination with the dihedral increases the angle of attack of the inboard wing relative to the outboard wing, countering the effect of the speed variation over the wing.
By tilting the gyro forward or aft at an angle someplace near 30 to 45 degrees it is possible to also obtain a measure of roll damping.

The three internal coordinates for the atoms are the bond length, bond angle, and dihedral angle.
The dihedral angle (also referred to as the torsional or tortional angle in some cases) is defined by reference to three previously defined atoms.
(Thus an input dihedral value of 240° will be output as -120°.) It is required that the three atoms to which the dihedral of a fourth atom is referenced do not assume a straight line arrangement either as a part of the definition or as a result of the geometry optimization.

MOPAC calculations do not distinguish between enantiomers, consequently the sign of the dihedrals can be multiplied by -1 and the calculations will be unaffected.
The dihedral angle convention used in MOPAC is that defined by Klyne and Prelog [72].

In order to measure a dihedral angle, the new experimental apparatus was constructed and the new procedure was adopted.
By comparing the dihedral angles measured with those calculated by applying Neumann's relations to the interfacial tension values, it was concluded that the dihedral angle measurement was performed with a satisfactory accuracy.

 AERADE
The contribution varies linearly with dihedral angle and, provided that the lift coefficient is less than 60 per cent of its stalling value, is independent of lift coefficient.
For non-rigid wings allowance must be made for the additional dihedral due to wing deflection under load and a formula is suggested to extend the use of the data to that case.
For a wing with dihedral starting at some outboard spanwise station, the contribution of dihedral to the derivative is found from the difference between the contributions for a wing with full-span dihedral (from ESDU Aero A.06.01.03) and for one with dihedral from the root to the station where dihedral starts on the real wing.
