Instructions:
  • Answer 21 questions in 15 minutes.
  • 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. Individual interconnected parts of structure






2. Forces that don't change






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






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






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






6. Opposing force sliding past each other






7. A force that pulls apart






8. A force that pushes togeather






9. Shorter is stronger






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






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






12. Members start to bend due to increased load






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






14. A twisting force






15. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






16. Thicker than can hold more






17. (1) Compression (2) Tension






18. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






19. Forces that act upon a structure






20. 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






21. Forces that change
