Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Most Building codes in the United States are established by

    • A.

      Federal laws

    • B.

      Model code writing agencies

    • C.

      State governments

    • D.

      Local governments

    Correct Answer
    B. Model code writing agencies
    Explanation
    Model code writing agencies, such as the International Code Council (ICC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), develop model building codes that are then adopted and enforced by state and local governments. While federal laws may have some influence, building codes are primarily regulated at the state and local levels.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    ASTM is

    • A.

      A model code group

    • B.

      An industry standard-writing organization

    • C.

      A testing laboratory

    • D.

      A federal code writing agency

    Correct Answer
    B. An industry standard-writing organization
    Explanation
    ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) is an industry standard-writing organization. This means that ASTM develops and publishes voluntary consensus standards for various industries, such as construction, materials, and manufacturing. These standards are widely used and accepted by businesses and organizations to ensure quality, safety, and compatibility of products and processes. ASTM's standards are developed through a collaborative process involving experts from industry, government, academia, and other stakeholders.

  • 3. 

    In starting a design project in a multi-use building, what information would an interior designer need to determine

    • A.

      Construction type, adjacent occupancies, and sprinkler condition

    • B.

      Construction type, fire zone classification, and accessibility requirements

    • C.

      Adjacent occupancies, sprinkler condition, and fire-zone classification

    • D.

      Adjacent occupancies, firezone classification, and accessibility requirements

    Correct Answer
    A. Construction type, adjacent occupancies, and sprinkler condition
    Explanation
    An interior designer would need to determine the construction type of the building to understand its structural characteristics and limitations. They would also need to know the adjacent occupancies to ensure that the design complies with any regulations or restrictions related to neighboring spaces. Additionally, knowing the sprinkler condition is important for fire safety considerations and to determine if any modifications or additions are required. Therefore, the information needed by the interior designer includes the construction type, adjacent occupancies, and sprinkler condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    In order to specify an acceptable type of wall covering, which of the following tests should the designer require that the wall covering pass?

    • A.

      Methenamine pill test

    • B.

      Smoke density chamber test

    • C.

      Steiner tunnel test

    • D.

      Vertical ignition test

    Correct Answer
    C. Steiner tunnel test
    Explanation
    The Steiner tunnel test is used to determine the flame spread and smoke development characteristics of a material. It measures the rate at which a material burns and the amount of smoke it produces. In the context of specifying an acceptable type of wall covering, the designer would want to ensure that the chosen material has a low flame spread and smoke development rating to enhance fire safety in the building. Therefore, requiring the wall covering to pass the Steiner tunnel test would help in selecting a suitable and safe option.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    In which building type are fire-resistive construction requirements likely to be LEAST restrictive?

    • A.

      Type I

    • B.

      Type II

    • C.

      Type III

    • D.

      Type IV

    Correct Answer
    D. Type IV
    Explanation
    Fire-resistive construction requirements are likely to be least restrictive in Type IV buildings. Type IV buildings, also known as heavy timber construction, have structural members made of solid or laminated wood that are larger and more fire-resistant than those found in other building types. This means that Type IV buildings have a higher level of inherent fire resistance, making the fire-resistive construction requirements less stringent compared to other building types.
