Bernoulli effect

the decrease in pressure as the velocity of a fluid increases.
Bernoulli effect
The phenomenon of falling pressure in a fluid as the velocity of the fluid stream increases. The Bernoulli effect accounts for the lift generated by the airfoil shape of an airplane wing. See also Bernoulli’s law, lift. See Note at aerodynamics.
