Abstract:

The work by Roesener 1 and Roesener et al. 27 documents an advanced tabu search TS approach to both the static and dynamic airlift loading problem. It represents an extension of Harwigs seminal work 5,19 on the two-dimensional orthogonal bin packing problem. However, in Roeseners research, additional constraints associated with military aircraft such as weight and balance had to be considered. Roeseners methodology was shown to be significantly superior to standard practices employed at the time of its development.
