fairing


Explanation:
Encontrei esta palavra ao fazer uma tradução sobre plataformas offshore. Ao pesquisar na WEB encontrei vários exemplos em que carenagem & fairing se equivalem,levando implícita a idéia de aerodinamismo, sem necessidade de dizer-se streamlined fairing ou carenagem aerodinâmica, o que seria um pleonasmo.
