fairing


Explanation:
Hay un problema de significado entre dos palabras parecidas: "carena" es efectivamente la parte sumergida de una nave, o la reparación que se hace en ella (el verbo es "carenar"); pero "carenado" (o "encarenado") es la "estructura aerodinámica que se añade a la carrocería de un móvil, para reducir al máximo la resistencia que ejerce el aire a su avance". Esta palabra es "fairing": "a estructure on the exterior of an aircraft to reduce drag".
Definiciones de la Enciclopedia Salvat (ES) y del Webster's (EN)
"fairing" para "carenado" lo da el Dicc. de Términos Técnicos de Collazo.
