TESTING OF THE SPANNING MEMBER RESULTED IN FAILURE ONLY AFTER MORE THAN 1,000 LBS OF LOADING. THE ULTIMATE FAILURE CAME FROM TORSION AND RACKING WHEN SIDE MOVEMENT OCCURED. THE BREAKAGE WAS EVEN ACROSS THE WHOLE MEMBER, TRANSLATING TO EVEN LOAD TRANSFER. THE ONLY JOINING OF WEBBING IS FROM WEGED MORTISE AND TENON JOINTS.
