Specialised definition of the noun aerodynamics

Glossary of sports

branch of fluid dynamics that deals with the forces and effects of air on objects moving through air. (Mark H. Anshel. 1991. Dictionary of the Sport and Exercise Sciences. Human Kinetics Books Champaign, Illinois)

the science of dynamics and the interaction of moving objects with the atmosphere (2006. Dictionary of Sport and Exercise Science. A&C Black Publishers Ltd)

science or theory of the effects of flowing gases (air). In sport aerodynamics play a significant role in those disciplines and movement forms where air and wind influence movement velocity. Important aspects are the taking of movement positions (aerodynamic position) as well as the design of sports equipment, which reduce air resistance if possible; examples are the monoposto position (tuck position) in alpine skiing, the external form (fairing) of equipment in automobile and motorcycle racing as well as in aeronautical sport (glider, hang glider), but also "streamlined" sport clothing such as suits for skating, downhill skiing, ski jumping, bobsleds, and luge. Therefore, the laws of aerodynamics play an essential role in the development of sports equipment and material in regard to optimal conditions for competition. (Herbert Haag & Gerald Haag. 2003. Dictionary. Sport, Physical Education, Sport Science. Kiel, Institut für Sport und Sportwissenschaften)

Miscellanea

Aerodynamics, from Greek ἀήρ aer + δυναμική, is a branch of dynamics concerned with studying the motion of air, particularly when it interacts with a solid object, such as an airplane wing. Aerodynamics is a sub-field of fluid dynamics and gas dynamics, and many aspects of aerodynamics theory are common to these fields. The term aerodynamics is often used synonymously with gas dynamics, with the difference being that "gas dynamics" applies to the study of the motion of all gases, not limited to air.
