  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

1. Members start to bend due to increased load






2. A force that pushes togeather






3. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






4. Shorter is stronger






5. Members bend permeatly out of shape - Cracks may appear






6. Use materials with a good balance of weight and strength






7. Forces that act upon a structure






8. Opposing force sliding past each other






9. A twisting force






10. The only figure that can not change shape without shortening or lengthing a side.






11. Individual interconnected parts of structure






12. 1) I 2) T 3) Channel 4) Box 5) Angle






13. Forces that don't change






14. (1) Compression (2) Tension






15. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






16. Forces that change






17. Thicker than can hold more






18. A structure made from more than 1 or more triangles






19. A force that pulls apart






20. Lighter so that the supports hold less and there is less static load






21. Pushing down in 1 spot at the middle of the bridge is more stressful to the structurethan if the same force is spread out. One heavy trucj in the middle of a bridge has more effect than several cars that are spread out but total the same weight
