AIR4899 - Cargo Compartments Maximum Package Size Calculation Methodology

Document Number: AIR4899
Revision Number:
Cargo Compartments Maximum Package Size Calculation Methodology
The methodology for maximum package size loading is bsed 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.
