  • 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. A force that pulls apart






2. A force that pushes togeather






3. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






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






5. Forces that don't change






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






7. Shorter is stronger






8. Members start to bend due to increased load






9. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






10. (1) Compression (2) Tension






11. Forces that act upon a structure






12. Thicker than can hold more






13. Individual interconnected parts of structure






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






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






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






17. Forces that change






18. 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






19. Opposing force sliding past each other






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






21. A twisting force
