The cargo peak, also called maximum depth of cargo or maximum height of cargo, is the maximum or expected maximum height of a solid bulk cargo after loading in the hold of a bulk carrier. The maximum depth of cargo is used during the Flow Table Test (FTT) and Penetration Test (PT) during the preparation of the sample to determine the tamping pressure to be used during the test[1].
