- (engineering) To eject waste material that has been excavated or dredged to the side, rather than hauling it away.
- 1976, Barbers Point Harbor, Oahu: Environmental Impact Statement:
- The dragline sidecasts material into a 'wet' stockpile located on-shore, immediately adjacent to the excavation.
- 1997, Juneau Access Improvements: Environmental Impact Statement:
- Areas where sidecasting would be done are typically steep.
- 2005, United States Environmental Protection Agency: Environmental Appeals Board, Environmental administrative decisions:
- According to the record, this piece of equipment rides on tracks (similar to a bulldozer) rather than on wheels, and it sidecasts excavated material directly into a dump truck.
- (fishing) To cast a fishing line at an angle of 90 degrees using a special type of reel that rotates on its rod.
- 2015, Ana Veciana-Suarez, Birthday Parties in Heaven, →ISBN:
- I bait his hook with a plump and squirmy shrimp. With one arm, he sidecasts between two spindly roots.
- (engineering) Debris left next to a construction site from sidecasting.
- 1994, Lamefoot Mine Environmental Impact Statement, Supplement to the Kettle River Key Project Expansion:
- In areas of moderate slopes, recontouring can be accomplished by salvaging sidecast deposited during road construction.
- 1997, Final Environmental Impact Statement: Umpqua National Forest (N.F.), Stewart Mining Operation:
- The site does not conflict with the proposed road right-of-way, but could be indirectly impacted by sidecast or disturbance of hydrologic flow. Sidecast would impact the site by permanently disturbing habitat and/or eliminating plants.
- 2006, Rattan Lal, Encyclopedia of Soil Science - Volume 2, →ISBN, page 1380:
- In contrast, tree growth has been found to be higher on displaced material such as berms and sidecasts compared with the harvested undisturbed soils.
- 2007, Klamath Hydroelectric Project, FERC Project No. 2080-027, Oregon and California:
- Removing the sidecast barrier material also could facilitate passage of rainbow trout through the reach to access spawning and rearing habitat and the portion of the spring-water fed thermal refugia that are upstream of the sidecast barrier.
- (engineering) A mode of using a suction dredge that sidecasts the material that is dredged up using a pipeline to the bank or by jetting.
- 1979, Lockwoods Folly Inlet: Environmental Impact Statement, page 35:
- Accordingly, alternative dredge plants were analyzed, including pipeline, hopper, and the conventional sidecast dredge.
- (fishing) A type of reel with a spool that rotates on a fixed base through 90 degrees to allow sidecasting.
- 2005, Gary Brown, Beach and Rock Fishing, →ISBN:
- When fishing for drummer off the rocks with a sidecast reel, have the drag set at about 50 per cent of the breaking strain to start with.
- 2010, Steve Starling, Fishing For Dummies, →ISBN:
- Giving the design even more of an Aussie edge, the name of the largest Australian manufacturer of sidecasts — Alvey — has become a generic title for this type of reel, just as Esky has come to mean insulated cooler.
- (drafting) A calculation or figure that is listed in a table beside a drawing that gives a value which cannot be read directly from the drawing.
- 1999, Paul K. Marsden, Basic Building Measurement, →ISBN, page 12:
- The first sub-column is used as a factor column, the second for take-off figures, the third for extensions, the fourth for locations, and the fifth for sidecasts.
- 2013, Sean D. C. Ostrowski, Measurement using the New Rules of Measurement, →ISBN:
- Calculate the 'sidecasts' that are likely to be used, e.g. centre lines, floor to ceiling heights, room dimensions.
