 Orbital inclination change - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An important sublty of performing an inclination change is that Keplerian orbital inclination is defined by the angle between ecliptic North and the vector normal to the orbit plane, (i.e.
This means that inclination is always positive and is entangled with other orbital elements primarily the argument of periapsis which is in turn connected to the longitude of the ascending node.
For more complicated manuvers which may involve a combination of change in inclination and orbital radius, the amount of delta v is the vector difference between the velocity vectors of the initial orbit and the desired orbit at the transfer point.

Inclination is one of the six orbital parameters describing the shape and orientation of a celestial orbit.
In the solar system, the inclination (i in figures 1 and 2, below) of the orbit of a planet is defined as the angle between the plane of the orbit of the planet, and the ecliptic, which is the orbit of Earth.
The inclination of distant objects, such as a binary star, is defined as the angle between the normal to the orbital plane and the direction to the observer, since no other reference is available.

 Inclination   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-23)
Inclination is the measure of how much an orbit is inclined, or tilted, with respect to the equator.
An inclination of 90 degrees would travel directly over the north and south poles and would be perpendicular to the equator.
The most popular inclination for shuttle flights is 28.5 degrees but the shuttle often goes to 39 or even 57 degrees.

 inclination
Orbital inclination (i) is the angle between the orbital plane of an object and a reference plane that passes through the body being orbited.
For binary stars, the inclination is specified relative to the plane of the sky.
Axial inclination is the angle between a planet or moon's rotation axis and its orbit; in the case of a star, the reference plane is usually that of the celestial sphere.

 eccentricity is ruled out
In Figures 3A, B, and C we plot i, the orbital inclination of the Earth, and Omega, the projection of the inclination vector on the ecliptic (the present plane of the Earth's orbit), taken from Quinn et al.
The inclination i is the angle between this vector and the vector of the reference frame; Omega is the azimuthal angle = the angle of the ascending node (in astronomical jargon)..
In contrast, the inclination of the Earth's orbit matches both the spectral and the bispectral fingerprints of the climate data, and accounts for the absence of the 400 kyr cycle (the stage-1 and stage-11 problems).

 Simultaneous presence of Orbital Inclination and Eccentricity
expected from inclination variations and are in serious conflict with the triplet peak (near periods of 95, 125, and 400 k.y.) expected from eccentricity.
Although the spectra of eccentricity and inclination are quite different, they are remarkably easy to confuse for two reasons: First, it has become traditional to ignore the absence of the expected 400 k.y.
O data is similar to that of orbital inclination, but is strikingly different from that of eccentricity; in particular, the spectral power in the vicinity of the frequency f = 0.01 cycles/k.y.

 Orbital Mechanics
Inclination is the angular distance between a satellite's orbital plane and the equator of its primary (or the ecliptic plane in the case of heliocentric, or sun centered, orbits).
An inclination of 90 degrees indicates a polar orbit.
High inclination orbits are less able to take advantage of the initial speed provided by the Earth's rotation, thus the launch vehicle must provide a greater part, or all, of the energy required to attain orbital velocity.

The light was then extinguished and the magnetic field changed to expose the hatchlings to a 30 degree inclination angle, found near the southern edge of the gyre.
The hatchlings responded to the 30 degree inclination angle by swimming to the northeast.
This response would seem to be particularly important at the 60 degree inclination angle, as it is experienced at the northern edge of the gyre.

The act of inclining, or state of being inclined; a leaning; as, an inclination of the head.
A direction or tendency from the true vertical or horizontal direction; as, the inclination of a column, or of a road bed.
(Geom.) The angle made by two lines or planes; as, the inclination of the plane of the earth's equator to the plane of the ecliptic is about 23° 28´; the inclination of two rays of light.

That error is multiplied by the cosine of the inclination angle when viewed by the shooter, so that the aiming error after the aiming adjustment can be no more than about 3 inches at the slant range distance from the hunter to the animal.
The 60o inclination angle is a worst case (among the four inclination angles considered) for the terminal velocity differences; the differences are smaller at any given range distance for lower inclination angles.
In a hunting situation in mountainous terrain inclination angles larger that 30o are seldom encountered, but an angle as large as 45o might be encountered when hunting game such as mountain goats, mountain sheep, or mouflon in certain parts of the world.

 Inclination Effects on Drag
Because it is so hard to measure such flow conditions, engineers usually leave the plot blank beyond wing stall.
Since the amount of drag generated at zero angle and the location of the stall point must usually be determined experimentally, aerodynamicists include the effects of inclination in the drag coefficient.
There is another factor which affects the amount of drag produced by a finite wing.

 Pisa goes critical
The inclination of the tower is increasing inexorably to a point where it is about to fall over.
For most of this century the inclination of the Tower has been increasing by amounts measured in arc seconds (five arc seconds is equivalent to about 1.5mm movements at the top of the Tower).
The Commission opted for a so called ‘very soft' solution aimed at reducing the inclination of the Tower by up to half a degree (which would not be visible) by means of induced subsidence beneath the north side of the foundation without touching the structure of the Tower.
