  • 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.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. Shorter is stronger

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

3. A force that pushes togeather

4. 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

5. Opposing force sliding past each other

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

7. State of balance where opposing forces are equal

8. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members

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

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

11. Forces that change

12. Forces that don't change

13. (1) Compression (2) Tension

14. Thicker than can hold more

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

16. A twisting force

17. Members start to bend due to increased load

18. A force that pulls apart

19. Forces that act upon a structure

20. Individual interconnected parts of structure

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