  • 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.

2. Opposing force sliding past each other






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






4. Forces that act upon a structure






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






6. 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






7. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






8. Thicker than can hold more






9. A force that pushes togeather






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






11. Members start to bend due to increased load






12. Forces that don't change






13. A twisting force






14. Shorter is stronger






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






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






17. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






18. Forces that change






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






20. Individual interconnected parts of structure






21. (1) Compression (2) Tension
