standing wave

standing wave
i. A wave in the atmosphere that remains stationary in a moving fluid. Mountain waves and lee waves are two standing waves normally encountered in flight. See mountain wave.
ii. A stationary wave or wave pattern formed in a vibrating body (e.g., in a turbine disc by reflection).
iii. Stationary voltage existing on an antenna that is caused by two waves traveling in opposite directions along the conductor but which are identical in amplitude and frequency.
