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.

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.

For very blunt shapes, the most important hypersonic simulation parameter for aerodynamics is the density ratio across the normal portion of the bow shock or corresponding value of ratio of specific heats within the shock layer for continuum flow. In the continuum flow regime, Mach number effects for Mach numbers in excess of five are generally negligible (the Mach number independence principle ), as are viscous effects on the forebody where the boundary layer is quite thin.

Aerodynamics is the study of how air flows around objects. To make bikes more streamlined, designers use a structure called a wind tunnel. Inside the tunnel, wind from a giant fan blows past a bicycle and a dummy rider bolted to the seat. Machines measure how easily the wind moves past the bicycle. The more quickly and smoothly the air moves, the faster the bike can go. Designers keep making changes to build bikes with the greatest possible speed. The world's most widely used ...

Aerodynamics is an important branch of Aerospace Engineering. There are three components in modern aerodynamic studies. They are experimental, theoretical ( analytical or semi analytical) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approaches respectively. Each approach has its own advantages and disadvantages. Usually the most effective approach is to amalgamate both experimental and theoretical/ CFD investigation in a most rational manner to solve a particular problem.

Aerodynamics, a branch of physical science, is the study of the motion of a body (aircraft) moving through the air and the reaction of the air when disturbed by the body, as opposed to stationary air (aerostatics) . The name aerodynamics (aerios dynamis) was taken from the Greek language where aerios is associated with the air and dynamis means force . The modern term of aerodynamics was first introduced in 1837 in the Popular Encyclopedia, which to quote, ...
