Definition of the noun aerodynamic force
What does aerodynamic force mean as a name of something?
- forces acting on airfoils in motion relative to the air (or other gaseous fluids)
Aerodynamic force is exerted on a body by the air in which the body is immersed, and is due to the relative motion between the body and the gas.
- also known as Full aerodynamic force
