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

2. Combine Horisantal and Vertical members

3. Individual interconnected parts of structure

4. State of balance where opposing forces are equal

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

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

7. Thicker than can hold more

8. Opposing force sliding past each other

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

10. Forces that act upon a structure

11. A force that pulls apart

12. Forces that don't change

13. A force that pushes togeather

14. A twisting force

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

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 start to bend due to increased load

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

19. (1) Compression (2) Tension

20. Forces that change

21. Shorter is stronger
