Just saw [structure] was used the other day and had 5 entries, anyone have objections if I remove this tag and add more specific ones to the entries in question? Mainly:

Why aren't rockets built with truss structures inside their fuel & oxidizer tanks to increase structural strength?

Are there liquid fueled rocket boosters having coaxial fuel/oxidizer tanks?

How does Orbex save structural weight by using coaxial tanks?

What is "additional line load" [N/mm] for the Ariane 5 launch vehicle?

How did NASA decide on its missions?

Let me know what you think a less generic term for "structure" is on a per-question basis, or if no edits are needed.


The first four use structure in a different way than the last. For the first four, I think the tag would work well, or the more specific .

For the last one, it is talking about structuring plans for an agency. I think the tag would be better there.

If you have a moderation donation fund I'd love to support it if it's not against SE rules, Paetron may be a great idea. $\endgroup$ – Magic Octopus Urn Sep 17 '19 at 20:15

  • $\begingroup$ @MagicOctopusUrn I went ahead and changed the tags as described in my answer. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Sep 19 '19 at 13:09

I don't think "structure" is really bad but if a change is needed how about "structural design"?

    $\begingroup$ I don't think it's a bad tag per se, but it does seem to have been created haphazardly, used only on a few questions, and not clearly defined. If you want to create a structural design tag and add it to relevant questions, you're welcome to! $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Sep 18 '19 at 13:16

    $\begingroup$ Since you went ahead and created structural-design, I made structure a synonym of it. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Sep 19 '19 at 16:07
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I'll try and add some info. I have not dealt with tags much. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Sep 19 '19 at 16:08
