What are static load and dynamic load?

A static load is the effect of gravity on an object or structure.

A dynamic load is the forces that move or change when acting on a structure.

Example of a dynamic load:

Force of wind or the weight of a truck

Example of a static load:

Weight of a bridge

Why are wings are used in missiles?

In order to stabilize them during their flight.

Actually, that's not quite right. Missiles have movable "wings" (a better term for them is "fins"), whose primary purpose is to steer the missile onto target. Most missiles' fins are attached to the main body on a small rotating disk. The missile's guidance package sends commands to each fin, rotating the entire fin up or down slightly, to change the airflow over the fin, and thus change direction of the entire missile.

Standard dumb bombs have fins which are not movable, and serve to stabilize the bomb when dropped, in the same way that feathers on an arrow stabilize it in fight. Modern "smart" bombs work identically to missiles, minus the rocket motor.

What is the Weight vs Wingspan ratio?

It's called Span Loading.

Aerospace Engineering

Difference between destructive testing and non destructive testing?

Destructive testing will render the part unusable for its intended purpose (e.g. it is cut up for analysis, or fatigue tested for life). Non destructive testing will, after testing, allow the part to be used for its intended purpose (e.g. test for leakage, flow, or resistance).

Salary and Pay Rates

What is the average salary for an aerospace engineere?

Salary for these positions usually really depends on experience and what part of the country you would work in, and of course if you have a PHD or just Master degree. But generally you would be wanting to look at somewhere around for a level 1 aerospace engineer is about 53k, for a level IV it would be more like 90k, now if you work in DC area you add about 40k to that where as in Florida it would be about what I mentioned above. Highest paid engineers are probably chemical and civil. Now I am a system engineer with about 5 years experience and with my company I make about 80k. So you can see it really varies with company, need, education and experience level and location. Hope that helps.

Aerospace Engineering

What is the difference between taper ratio and aspect ratio?

(For televisions)

Aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of the television screen to the height.

TVs do not have taper ratios.

(For airplanes)

Aspect ratio is a ratio of the wing span squared to the wing's reference area. This gives you a sense of how thin/slender a wing will appear from the top view of the aircraft. High aspect ratio means a long/extended wing.

b² / S

("b" is wing span, "S" is wing area)

Taper ratio is the ratio of the wingtip's length to the wing root's length. This gives you a sense of the angle the shape of the wing. High taper ratio means a triangular shaped wing.


("t" is length of the wingtip, "r" is length of wing's root)

Does an aeroplane have two engines?

It can have any number of engines of as many different types as needed.

For example the B-36 bomber was originally designed with six radial 28 cylinder piston engines driving pusher propellers. Later four small jet engines were added, making it the airplane with the most engines of any mass-produced aircraft ever built.

For some airplanes optional jet-assisted takeoff or rocket-assisted takeoff drop away engines can be added for increased thrust at takeoff without extra weight of those engines while in the air in normal flight.

Aerospace Engineering

What technology was necessary for the helicopter?

The technology that went into the first helicopters was nothing special. It just took special skills to design the controls for the main rotor blades.

I'm familiar with the invention of the first Bell helicopter that was begun in 1943. Arthur Young designed a model helicopter that he could fly by remote control. Since radio was new, his model had a long electrical cable that was attached to a "trapeze" under the model that transmitted the inputs.

Arthur Young lead a team of engineers to design a full-scale flying prototype. One of the problems they had in the construction was the transmission. The transmission required a gear reduction of 1:47, as I recall. The engineers couldn't do it. So they disassembled Young's model and drew up the pieces to full scale to make the planetary gear transmission that drove the main rotor.

After that, all it took was a lot of testing and adjusting the controls to make make the rotor stable but flyable. They added a stabilizer bar that helped keep the rotor tracking smoothly---which was still in the design of the Bell Model 47.

What is HS code?

The HS (Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System) is an international system of names and numbers for classifying traded products created by the World Customs Organization and used in determining tariffs on items shipped internationally.

The HS is based on the fundamental principle that goods are classified by what they are and not according to their stage of fabrication, use, "made in" status or any other such criteria.

The HS nomenclature is logically structured by economic activity or component material. For example, animals and animal products are found in one section; machinery and mechanical appliances, which are grouped by function, are found in another.

The nomenclature is divided into 21 Sections, which, in general, group goods produced in the same sector of the economy.

Each Section is comprised of one or more Chapters with the entire nomenclature being comprised of 97 Chapters.

HS codes have been established along the following hierarchical logic;

• HS-2 refers to the Chapter

• HS-4 refers to the Heading

• HS-6 refers to the Subheading

For example, product code 060110 refers to Chapter 6 (Live trees and other plants: bulbs, roots, etc…), Heading 01 (Bulbs, tubers, tuberous roots…dormant, in growth or in flower, etc….), and Subheading 10 (Bulbs, tubers, tuberous roots…. Dormant).

Further subdivisions (HS-8, HS-10, and HS12) are made by individual countries and trading blocks according to their specific tariff and statistical needs. These "final" product codes are contained in the particular Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the world.

The tariff and tariff-related provisions (e.g.- numerical codes and article descriptions) are presented in tabular format containing several columns. In those columns are contained the headings, subheadings, statistical annotations, article descriptions and rates of duty.

Browse and search HS Codes for free from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using the HS Code Handbook.
