Methodology of Calculating Aircraft Cargo Volumes(STABILIZED Mar 2014)
The scope of this SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) shall cover the methodology of defining and determining the "internal volumes" of both the main deck and lower deck aircraft cargo compartments. The minimum required clearance between the compartment envelope and the unit load devices (ULDs) shall also be stated in order to provide the maximum ULD external contour and the methodology to define the ULD internal volumes.
Rationale: The SAE AGE-2A committee determined that the technology/practice defined in this standard has reached a level of maturity such that it is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future; therefore, it does not require regular 5-year reviews by the committee and it is appropriate for it to be stabilized.
