6.3   Weight class M(max)
In this example two coils of 13.6 t each shall be loaded into a container of P = 27.780 t. Thus, each coil has a mass of 49 % of the payload. The diameter is d = 1.40 m and the breadth is b = 1.42 m. The coils are tendered on skids. The bottom scantlings of these skids have a cross-section of 15 x 15 cm and a length of 1.40 m.

The coils are stowed transversely into the container. With a spread of the outer scantlings of 1.25 m, the bedding length must be extended by longitudinal beams of at least 2.64 m length, according to the diagram in Figure 13. The coils are arranged as shown in Figure 28, according to the rule (1/4, 3/4) in chapter 3.2. This arrangement is symmetric in longitudinal and transverse direction.
