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_{load} symbol.
How to calculate Disk Loading using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Disk Loading, enter Aircraft Weight (W_{a}) & Diameter of Rotor (d_{r}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Disk Loading calculation can be explained with given input values -> 25.46479 = 1000/((pi*0.05)/4).
