|1.||a contour on a body that offers the minimum resistance to a gas or liquid flowing around it|
|2.||an imaginary line in a fluid such that the tangent at any point indicates the direction of the velocity of a particle of the fluid at that point|

|streamline (strēm'līn') Pronunciation Key
To construct or reconstruct an object to reduce the amount of drag it undergoes as it moves through a fluid, especially air or water.
Note: A “streamlined” design is one in which objects that move through a gas or liquid are shaped to match these lines, and therefore reduce the energy required to produce that motion.
