Disk Loading Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Load = Aircraft weight/((pi*Diameter of rotor)/4)
W = W/((pi*dr)/4)
This formula uses 1 Constants, 2 Variables
Constants Used
pi - Archimedes' constant Value Taken As 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288
Variables Used
Aircraft weight - Aircraft weight is the total aircraft weight at any moment during the flight or ground operation. (Measured in Newton)
Diameter of rotor - Diameter of rotor is the value of diameter of the rotor of a pump. (Measured in Meter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Aircraft weight: 1000 Newton --> 1000 Newton No Conversion Required
Diameter of rotor: 5 Meter --> 5 Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula

Disk Loading Formula

Load = Aircraft weight/((pi*Diameter of rotor)/4)
W = W/((pi*dr)/4)

Which air mode vehicle has the lowest disc loading?

The use of high disk loading rotors for lift compromises vertical flight capability. Helicopter has the lowest disk loading and thus has the most powerful vertical flight capability.

How to Calculate Disk Loading?

Disk Loading calculator uses Load = Aircraft weight/((pi*Diameter of rotor)/4) to calculate the Load, The Disk Loading formula is defined as the average pressure change across an actuator disk, such as an airscrew. Load is denoted by W symbol.

How to calculate Disk Loading using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Disk Loading, enter Aircraft weight (W) & Diameter of rotor (dr) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Disk Loading calculation can be explained with given input values -> 254.6479 = 1000/((pi*5)/4).

FAQ

What is Disk Loading?
The Disk Loading formula is defined as the average pressure change across an actuator disk, such as an airscrew and is represented as W = W/((pi*dr)/4) or Load = Aircraft weight/((pi*Diameter of rotor)/4). Aircraft weight is the total aircraft weight at any moment during the flight or ground operation & Diameter of rotor is the value of diameter of the rotor of a pump.
How to calculate Disk Loading?
The Disk Loading formula is defined as the average pressure change across an actuator disk, such as an airscrew is calculated using Load = Aircraft weight/((pi*Diameter of rotor)/4). To calculate Disk Loading, you need Aircraft weight (W) & Diameter of rotor (dr). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Aircraft weight & Diameter of rotor and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
