Definition of Dihedral

Dihedral
Dihedral Di*he"dral, a. 1. Of a kite or an a["e]roplane, having wings that make with one another a dihedral angle, esp. when the angle between the upper sides is less than 180[deg]. 2. (A["e]ronautics) Of wing pairs, inclined at an upward angle to each other.
Dihedral
Dihedral Di*he"dral, a. [Gr. di- = di`s- twice + ? a seat, bottom, base, fr. ? to sit. Cf. Diedral.] Having two plane faces; as, the dihedral summit of a crystal. Dihedral angle, the angular space contained between planes which intersect. It is measured by the angle made by any two lines at right angles to the two planes.
