In mathematics, width times height times depth equals volume. An equation for the simple volume of a box or cube: V = w x h x d.

The terms sometimes change depending upon what one measures. If the surface is flat and horizontal, such as when one measures a floor for a carpet, we might say length and width, or length and breadth. When one measures a flat vertical surface such as a wall, we would say length x height, or width x height. In both cases, the result is called area.

The word acronym is not correct here. An acronym is a word that is made from the first letters of a longer word:
radar (radio detection and rranging)

laser (light amplification by stimulation of emission of radiation)
scuba (self-contained underwater breathing apparatus)

We might call length, width, volume and similar words variables, dimensions, definitions, or traits, but not abbreviations.

I hope this helps.

Best thanks for your answers.
I think, that helps. It is for a description of a machine.
