As promised to Topaz....when I have completed a load to "limit" I will post.
Limit load test of elevator. Per "Faa Basic Glider Criteria" 12 #/sq ft. = 92 Lb. Uniform distribution span wise. The weights sit at the centroid of the ribs. This includes the gust loads. Elevator is mounted as it would be in the aircraft, from the hinges and control horn. Result...no deformation, usable part. Elevator as you see it (no fabric) weighs 3.4 #.
