Thermal Design and Performance of Airplane In-Flight Food Storage Carts
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides design guidance and a method for testing thermal performance of airplane in-flight food storage carts. It is noted that thermal performance criteria is not part of AS8056.
Revision includes alternatives to dry ice and heat source, as well as dimensional corrections for air-through cart inlets. The design of the in-flight food storage (galley) cart and its interface with the airplane galley cooling system is important for maintaining the thermal environment necessary for keeping food and beverages in a safe and high-quality condition. This document provides design guidance, performance criteria, and test methods to ensure that the galley cart exhibits the characteristics necessary to comply with this thermal requirement.
