to force termination of an ongoing process before its natural conclusion by bypassing one or more intermediary steps

My mother, determined to short-circuit my outcry, would match my objections by pointing out an inherent reward for doing such work.

to terminate a loop before the declared termination condition is met or a conditional before all conditions have been tested for

The Demand is done to ensure that you have indeed been granted this permission before using the Assert to short-circuit the stackwalk.

to cause a short circuit in
An unintentional connection of low resistance or impedance in a circuit such that excessive and often damaging current flows in it
An unintended low resistance connection across a low voltage source resulting in high current and possible damage
include a wire or other component into a circuit which effectively nullifies a component of that circuit, or leaves the voltage across the component unchanged in its AC or DC signal
a circuit with an unintended “shortcut” for electricity in it, so that electricity doesn’t go through the components that you want it to go through, but it goes through a lower resistance path
An accidentally established connection between two points in an electric circuit, such as when a tree limb, or an animal bridges the gap between two conductors This will cause heavy currents to flow in the line (overload) and result in melting of line fuses and operation of protective devices such as reclosers and circuit breakers BACK TO TOP
A low resistance connection, usually accidental, across part of a circuit, resulting in excessive current flow
An unintentional connection that provides a low resistance path between two points in a circuit or between a point in a circuit and ground A Short Circuit can drastically affect the operation of a circuit If excessive current flow results from the Short Circuit, a device may be damaged or ruined
A SHORT CIRCUIT is an interruption in the flow of electricity
accidental contact between two points in an electric circuit that have a potential difference
A situation in which the hot and neutral wires come in contact with eachother Fuses and circuit breakers protect the wires from an overheated wire that would result in a fire
low-resistance connection across a voltage source, or between the sides of a circuit or line Also called simply a "short", these typically result in excessive (and potentially damaging) current flow
A condition in which a short electrical path is unintentionally created An example would be setting a wrench on top of a battery touching the terminals Batteries can supply thousands of amps if short circuited, melting the wrench, the terminals, and showering sparks and molten metal This is not a good thing, and may be harmful to people and other living things
When current flows "short" of reaching a device Caused by a hot conductor accidentally contacting a neutral or ground A short circuit is an immediate fault to ground and should always cause the breaker to trip or the fuse to blow (also see ground fault)
low-resistance connection across a voltage source, or between the sides of a circuit or line Also called simply a ``short'', these typically result in excessive (and potentially damaging) current flow
A low-resistance connection established by accident or intention between two points in an electric circuit. The current tends to flow through the area of low resistance, bypassing the rest of the circuit. a failure of an electrical system, caused by bad wires or a fault in a connection in the wires
A circuit formed or closed by a conductor of relatively low resistance because shorter or of relatively great conductivity
- ignition failure caused when an electrical circuit is accidentally completed in the wrong place, such as bare wires, shunting the electricity away from the igniter
Short Circuit is a state when the device requires a current over the current limit A Power over LAN Hub has a current limit of 500mA
a low resistance connection unintentionally made between points of an electrical circuit which may result in current flow far above normal levels
a conducting path, or part of a circuit, with negligible or relatively low resistance The term is most commonly used to indicate an accidental path, which causes a much bigger current than the one you wanted See also open circuit
The condition that occurs when a circuit path is created between the positive and negative poles of a battery, power supply, or circuit A short circuit will bypass any resistance in a circuit and cause it not to operate 2
A fault or defect in a winding causing part of the normal electrical circuit to be bypassed, frequently resulting in overheating of the winding and burnout
A circuit that does not have the correct measurable resistance; too much current flows and will overload the conductors
faulty connection in an electrical circuit; cause a fault in a connection
An accidental connection between two conductors or between a conductor and ground or some other unintended surface Back to alphabetical list
– a circuit failure in which the current follows an alternative conducting path, usually parallel to the desired path, with lower resistance
1) Parts of a circuit connected together with only the impedance of the leads between them 2) In wind generators, connecting the output leads directly together so as to heavily load a generator in high winds This creates a "short" circuit path back to the generator, bypassing all other loads
Excess current flow that occurs when a conductor touches ground
An electric circuit through a negligible resistance that usually shunts a normal load and overloads the circuit
short circuit operator
A logical operator that returns a value as soon as the outcome is certain, without necessarily testing all operands (for example, an OR operator returning true if the first operand evaluates as true, without evaluating the second operand)
short circuits
plural form of short circuit
short circuits
Third-person singular simple present indicative form of short circuit
short-circuit
Alternative spelling of short circuit
short-circuit operator
Alternative spelling of short circuit operator
A short circuit
short
short-circuit
create a short-circuit in
short-circuit
If someone or something short-circuits a process or system, they avoid long or difficult parts of it and use a quicker, more direct method to achieve their aim. The approach was intended to short-circuit normal complaints procedures
short-circuit
create a short-circuit in hamper the progress of; impede; "short-circuit warm feelings
short-circuit
The nature of the awk logical operators `&&' and `||' If the value of the entire expression can be deduced from evaluating just the left-hand side of these operators, the right-hand side will not be evaluated (see section Boolean Expressions)
short-circuit
hamper the progress of; impede; "short-circuit warm feelings"
short-circuit
An un-intended path that conducts electricity Also called a "bridge" or "short" such as when solder from two tracks touch on a PC board
short-circuit
The nature of the awk logical operators `&&' and `||' If the value of the entire expression is determinable from evaluating just the lefthand side of these operators, the righthand side is not evaluated (See section Boolean Expressions )
short-circuit
The nature of the @command{awk} logical operators `&&' and `||' If the value of the entire expression is determinable from evaluating just the lefthand side of these operators, the righthand side is not evaluated (See section Boolean Expressions )
short-circuit
avoid something unpleasant or laborious; "You cannot bypass these rules!"
short-circuit
If an electrical device short-circuits or if someone or something short-circuits it, a wrong connection or damaged wire causes electricity to travel along the wrong route and damage the device. Carbon dust and oil build up in large motors and cause them to short-circuit Once inside they short-circuited the electronic security. Short-circuit is also a noun. The fire was started by an electrical short-circuit
shortcircuit
To join, as the electrodes of a battery or dynamo or any two points of a circuit, by a conductor of low resistance
