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

Disk Loading Formula

Load = Aircraft Weight/((pi*Diameter of Rotor^2)/4)
Wload = Wa/((pi*dr^2)/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^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.

How to calculate Disk Loading using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Disk Loading, enter Aircraft Weight (Wa) & Diameter of Rotor (dr) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Disk Loading calculation can be explained with given input values -> 5072.647 = 1000/((pi*0.501^2)/4).

FAQ

What is Disk Loading?
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 and is represented as Wload = Wa/((pi*dr^2)/4) or Load = Aircraft Weight/((pi*Diameter of Rotor^2)/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.
