  • 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. Forces that don't change






2. Shorter is stronger

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






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






6. (1) Compression (2) Tension






7. 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






8. A force that pulls apart






9. Forces that change






10. Members start to bend due to increased load






11. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






12. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






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






14. Individual interconnected parts of structure






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






16. A force that pushes togeather






17. Thicker than can hold more






18. Opposing force sliding past each other






19. A twisting force






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