Instructions:
  • 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.

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






2. Members start to bend due to increased load






3. A force that pulls apart






4. (1) Compression (2) Tension






5. Forces that act upon a structure






6. A twisting force






7. Thicker than can hold more






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






9. Opposing force sliding past each other






10. Shorter is stronger






11. Individual interconnected parts of structure






12. Forces that change






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






14. Forces that don't change






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






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. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members






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






19. State of balance where opposing forces are equal






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






21. A force that pushes togeather
