Aerodynamic shape

The shape of an object that air flows around laminarly without turbulence. The most aerodynamic shape is a droplet. The wings of airplanes or blades of wind turbines also have an aerodynamic shape at the cross section, modified so that the different velocities of the passing air at the upper and lower sides of the wing or blade result in lift.
