Abstract : The proposed greater reliance upon airlifting military forces demands that cargo loading time be minimized while utilization of aircraft cargo compartment space is maximized. Two loading algorithms have been developed with these goals in mind - a two dimensional one for loading cargo where all items must be placed on the floor, and a three-dimensional one for cargo which can be stacked. The three-dimensional algorithm consists of the two-dimensional algorithm and a special stacking algorithm, all designed for either hand calculations or computer calculations.
