Yaw or yaws may refer to:

Measurement and technology[edit]

Movement about the vertical axis[edit]

  • Yaw angle (or yaw rotation), one of the angular degrees of freedom of any stiff body (for example a vehicle), describing rotation about the vertical axis
    • Yaw (aviation), one of the aircraft principal axes of rotation, describing motion about the vertical axis of an aircraft (nose-left or nose-right angle measured from vertical axis)
    • Yaw (ship motion), one of the ship motions' principal axes of rotation, describing motion about the vertical axis of a ship (bow-left or bow-right angle measured from vertical axis)
  • Yaw rate (or yaw velocity), the angular speed of yaw rotation, measured with a yaw rate sensor
  • Yawing moment, the angular momentum of a yaw rotation, important for adverse yaw in aircraft dynamics

Wind turbines[edit]

  • Yaw system, a yaw angle control system in wind turbines responsible for the orientation of the rotor towards the wind
    • Yaw bearing, the most crucial and cost intensive component of modern horizontal axis wind turbine yaw systems
    • Yaw drive, an important component of modern horizontal axis wind turbine yaw systems
