Ultimate Tensile Stress for Plate
Ultimate Tensile Strength = (Edge Load per Unit Width*Distance between Rivets)/(Plate Thickness*(Distance between Rivets-Diameter of Rivet))
Edge Load per Unit Width = (2*Distance between Rivet and Edge of Plate*Plate Thickness*Maximum Shear Stress)/(Distance between Rivets)
Allowable Bearing Pressure
Bearing Stress = (Edge Load per Unit Width*Distance between Rivets)/(Plate Thickness*Diameter of Rivet)
Edge Load per Unit Width = (pi*(Diameter^2)*Maximum Shear Stress)/(4*Distance between Rivets)
Joint Efficiency
Joint Efficiency for Shell = (Distance between Rivets-Diameter)/(Distance between Rivets)
Load = Aircraft Weight/((pi*Diameter of Rotor^2)/4)
Blade Lift Coefficient = 6*Thrust Coefficient/Rotor Solidity
Life of Aircraft given number of Flight
Number of Flights = (1/Total Damage per Flight)

Load = Aircraft Weight/((pi*Diameter of Rotor^2)/4)

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.

Disk Loading calculator uses Load = Aircraft Weight/((pi*Diameter of Rotor^2)/4) to calculate the Load, Disk Loading refers to the ratio of the total weight of an aircraft to the area of its rotor disk (for rotary-wing aircraft) or wing area (for fixed-wing aircraft), it is a critical parameter that characterizes the aerodynamic performance and lift distribution of the aircraft's lifting surfaces. Load is denoted by Wload symbol.
