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

2. Forces that change

3. Forces that act upon a structure

4. Opposing force sliding past each other

5. Shorter is stronger

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

7. Forces that don't change

8. Thicker than can hold more

9. A force that pushes togeather

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

11. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members

12. Individual interconnected parts of structure

13. A force that pulls apart

14. Members start to bend due to increased load

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

16. 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

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

18. A twisting force

19. State of balance where opposing forces are equal

20. (1) Compression (2) Tension

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