Many of you are aware that I am in the design phase of building a Biplane based on the Curtiss-Stinson Special that belonged to Katherine Stinson. In my research, the one thing I am not finding is any good reference materials on the lift distribution of biplane wings. I could really use some help, here, since it is hard to build and test a wing, when you do not know the lift distribution.
In my case, all wings are going to be built the same, just varied for port and starboard, plus the middle section for the upper wings.

Thanks in advance,
Jeff
