  • 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) Compression (2) Tension

2. A force that pushes togeather

3. Individual interconnected parts of structure

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

5. 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

6. Forces that don't change

7. Thicker than can hold more

8. Members start to bend due to increased load

9. A twisting force

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

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

12. A force that pulls apart

13. Shorter is stronger

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

15. Forces that act upon a structure

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

17. State of balance where opposing forces are equal

18. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members

19. Forces that change

20. Opposing force sliding past each other

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