Likewise, the bending forces acting on the ends of the rail resulting from the twisting of the side rails along their longitudinal axis may be ignored because of their small magnitude -- owing partially to the small rotation of the ends of the front rail and partially to the (relatively) low modulus of rigidity of wood of the side rails.
