ARP5596B - Cargo Shoring Guidelines

Document Number: ARP5596B
Revision Number: B
Cargo Shoring Guidelines
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) specifies guidelines for calculating and performing shoring (load spreading) required on board civil transport aircraft whenever a piece of cargo to be carried exceeds the aircraft's maximum allowable limits in area load, running load, or both. It provides both the engineering methods needed to properly design a shoring arrangement, and the main practical dos and donts known from experience to ensure its effectiveness in protecting the aircraft's structure against overload.
