Aircraft Cargo Systems - Missing Restraint Limitations Layouts

2014-12-28
CURRENT
ARP5492A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides recommendations for aircraft manufacturers and operating carriers about how to establish common information for the use of cargo systems with missing/inoperative restraints. Because of the fact that the certified restriction requirements due to missing/inoperative restraints are dependent of the specific aircraft structure and the system layout of the cargo loading system, this document shall only recommend common layout of information for the users based on the certified data provided to allow for common training, understanding and handling. This shall be used right from the beginning for future aircraft types for certified data.

Cargo Compartments Maximum Package Size Calculation Methodology

2014-03-25
CURRENT
AIR4899A
The methodology for maximum package size loading is based on a mathematical method allowing the calculation of maximum package size tables. This method does not in principal differentiate between bulk loading and cargo system loading. However, some restrictions have to be considered: Some cargo systems generate pre-determined pallet trajectories. Envelope curves depending on the pallet size and the possible trajectories have to be determined first. Door geometric limitations (with or without cargo loading system) Turning limitations due to weight, load geometry and conveyance capability Securing requirements This document is not intended for airline operational use. It should be used by engineers performing calculations or developing computer programs to produce Maximum Package Size tables specified in AS1825.

2013-06-27
CURRENT
AS1677D
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers the design, fabrication, performance and operational testing requirements for lower deck containers for use in main line aircraft which do not require airworthiness certification when loaded under the conditions of compartment restraint and in accordance with the aircraft's Weight and Balance Manual and/or, where applicable according to the aircraft type's approved Weight and Balance Manual, AS36100A or NAS 3610 equivalent base plate restraint for these containers. Most sizes of containers covered by this document (base sizes K, L, P, and Q) cannot physically be loaded and latched on aircraft main deck cargo systems. Base size A and M containers can, but are not allowed on aircraft main decks, which do not accept non-certified units. Accordingly, all containers covered by this document are to be used/installed exclusively in aircraft lower deck compartments.

Cargo Restraint on Aircraft Passenger Seats – Main Passenger Cabin

2011-12-12
CURRENT
ARP4049A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes the basic recommendations for the following two types of configuration for securing cargo to aircraft passenger seats on transport category aircraft: It is emphasized that the two types of restraint shown are merely examples of methods currently used and does not imply that alternative methods are not acceptable. For the purposes of this document, the minimum essential criteria are identified by the use of the key word "shall," Recommended criteria are identified by the use of the key word "should," and while not mandatory are considered to be of significant importance in providing safe, economical, and practical means of cargo restraint. Deviation from recommended criteria should occur only after careful consideration, extensive testing, and thorough service evaluation have shown alternative methods to be satisfactory.
