Therefore material needed for stabilizer must be strong enough to withstand the force. tensile force acting upon the structure and the structure tend to pull the stabilizer to fall apart. Bending-A bending force tries to pull one side of a body apart while at the same time squeezing the other side together resultant from air flow over the stabilizer at high speed .LEADING EDGE – STABILIZER Tension-when air flow over the horizontal stabilizer.

TRAILING EDGE. .STABILIZER Torsion-As a result from trailing edge drag.a tensile stress acts dioganally across the surface and a compressive stress acts at right angles to the torsion. this twisting force acting upon the surface can harm and cracked the structure.

shear stress occur because the stabilizer flapping and it tend to pull out the the mounting surface fall apart.AUXILLARY SPAR Shear-At the mounting surface of the stabilizer.This stress mostly acts upon the rivet on the joint surface of the stabilizer Torsion-Torsion occur at this structure resultant from stabilizer flapping and produce twisting force at the surface Bending-This structure must be able to withstand both compressive and tensile stresses because the air at high speed tend to make the stabilizer flapping.As a result. . the bending stresses acting upon the surface and it can damage the structure.
