Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The process of removing concrete forms from the cured concrete?

    • A.

      Clearing

    • B.

      Deforming works

    • C.

      Stripping

    • D.

      None of these

    • E.

      Cleaning

    Correct Answer
    C. Stripping
    Explanation
    Stripping refers to the process of removing concrete forms from the cured concrete. This involves carefully taking off the molds or forms that were used to shape and support the concrete during the curing process. Stripping is an important step in construction as it allows the concrete to be exposed and further worked on if needed. Clearing, deforming works, and cleaning are not relevant to this process.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The ultimate strength of the material divided by allowable working load?

    • A.

      Strength limit

    • B.

      Maximum strength

    • C.

      Safety factor

    • D.

      Deflection

    • E.

      Proportional limit

    Correct Answer
    C. Safety factor
    Explanation
    The safety factor is the ratio of the ultimate strength of a material to the allowable working load. It is used to ensure that the material can handle unexpected or excessive loads without failure. By dividing the ultimate strength by the allowable working load, the safety factor determines how much extra strength the material has beyond what is required for normal operating conditions. A higher safety factor indicates a greater margin of safety and a lower risk of failure. Therefore, the safety factor is the correct answer in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Beam that project beyond one or both its support?

    • A.

      Cantilever beam

    • B.

      Continuous beam

    • C.

      Intermediate beam

    • D.

      Overhanging beam

    • E.

      Grade Beam

    Correct Answer
    D. Overhanging beam
    Explanation
    An overhanging beam is a type of beam that extends beyond one or both of its supports. This means that the beam has one or more portions that hang over the edge of its support. This design allows for greater flexibility in terms of load distribution and structural stability. By extending the beam beyond its supports, it can provide additional support and balance to the structure it is part of. This makes it a suitable choice for situations where there is a need for extra support or where the load distribution needs to be adjusted.

    Type of fitting for yoke vent?

    • A.

      Tee

    • B.

      Crowfoot

    • C.

      Wye

    • D.

      Elbow

    • E.

      1/4 vent

    Correct Answer
    C. Wye
    Explanation
    A yoke vent is a plumbing fitting used to provide ventilation for drainage systems. It is typically installed at the top of a vertical drainage pipe and allows air to enter the pipe, preventing the formation of a vacuum and ensuring proper drainage flow. The correct answer, "Wye," refers to a type of fitting that has a Y-shaped configuration, with one inlet and two outlets. This design allows for the connection of multiple pipes and is commonly used in plumbing systems to create branch connections. Therefore, a wye fitting is the appropriate choice for a yoke vent.

    Correct Answer
    A. MAT/RAFT FOUNDATION
    Explanation
    A mat/raft foundation is a type of foundation that is used when there is a need to distribute the load of a structure over a large area. It consists of a thick concrete slab that extends over the entire footprint of the structure, providing a stable base. This type of foundation is commonly used in areas with weak or unstable soil conditions, as it helps to distribute the load and prevent settlement. The large footing extending a wide area mentioned in the question is a characteristic of a mat/raft foundation, making it the correct answer.

    • D.

      Foundation Wall

    • E.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    A. Retaining Wall
    Explanation
    A retaining wall is a structure designed to hold back soil or other materials and prevent erosion or collapse. It is commonly used in landscaping and construction to create level areas or prevent the movement of soil on slopes. Retaining walls are typically made of concrete, stone, or other durable materials and are built with a slight backward lean to counteract the pressure exerted by the soil. This helps to stabilize the earth embankment and prevent it from sliding or collapsing. Therefore, a retaining wall is the correct answer in this case.

It is designed to be submerged underwater and provides a dry working environment for construction activities. This type of foundation is commonly used in situations where the construction site is located in a waterlogged area or where the water table is high. The caisson is sunk into the ground and then filled with concrete or other materials to provide stability and support for the building structure.

    A horizontal beam that supports a floor joist is called a girder. A girder is a large and strong beam that is typically made of steel or wood and is used to support the weight of other structural elements, such as floor joists or walls. It provides stability and distributes the load evenly to prevent sagging or collapse of the structure. In this context, a girder is the correct answer as it is specifically designed for this purpose.

    Correct Answer
    A. LAMINATED GLASS
    Explanation
    Laminated glass is the correct answer because it is a type of glass that is designed to be shutter proof and is commonly used in constructing vision doors. Laminated glass is made by sandwiching a layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) between two layers of glass, which provides added strength and safety. In the event of an impact, the glass may crack but the PVB layer holds the pieces together, preventing them from shattering and causing injury. This makes laminated glass a suitable choice for applications where safety is a priority, such as vision doors.
