Fixed Wing Calculations Are More Complex Because Of The Different Failure Modes Resulting In Different Vectors.
These calculations do NOT take into account form drag from the aircraft as it drops. This means the kinetic energy levels being estimated here are conservative and overestimate what we would see in reality.
Disclaimer Notice: The final number represents an approximation and should only be used as a guide. No guarantees or warranties are implied. This calculator is “as is” and you should use it at your own risk.
The FAA’s Operations Over People regulations have the following:
-Category 2 is under 11 foot-pounds.
-Category 3 is 11.00 – 24.99 foot-pounds.
