Figure 8-26. Top tier bracing at sweatboards, severe hull angles (sweatboard blocking technique).
8-5. Sweatboard-to-Sweatboard Shoring of Cargo Voids
a. Figure 8-27 shows one method
of shoring voids.
be noted that the supports
in the lower tier voids are
simply prefabricated void tables made up of two 2 by 6-inch plates fastened to two 4 by 4-inch uprights. A method of
fabricating tables is shown in figure 8-28. The height and depth of the table, of course, are equal to those of the unit
loads in the tier. Tables are not used in voids in the top tier, where overstow weight is absent; instead, a fullblock
structure is used to eliminate movement of the unit loads. Details of this structure are shown in figure 8-29. The width is
such that it bears tightly against each unit load. The height and depth are equal to those of the unit loads.
