### Dat platform structure of the building suspended by posts, columns, walls and beams

• A.

Floor Framing

• B.

• C.

• D.

Span of Supports

A. Floor Framing
Explanation
The correct answer is "Floor Framing." Floor framing refers to the structure of a building's floor that is supported by posts, columns, walls, and beams. It is responsible for providing stability and support to the floor and distributing the load evenly across the building's structure. This includes the arrangement and construction of floor joists, beams, and subflooring.

### Refers to those moveable loads

• A.

Floor Framing

• B.

• C.

• D.

Span of Supports

Explanation
Live load refers to those movable loads that are not permanently attached to a structure, such as furniture, people, or equipment. Unlike dead load, which refers to the weight of the structure itself and any permanently attached elements, live load can vary and is temporary in nature. It is an important consideration in structural design as it helps determine the strength and stability of a structure to accommodate the expected loads during its intended use.

### Pertain to the distances between the post, columns or supporting walls

• A.

Floor Framing

• B.

• C.

• D.

Span of Supports

D. Span of Supports
Explanation
The term "span of supports" refers to the distance between the supporting walls or columns in a structure. In the context of floor framing, it is crucial to consider the span of supports as it directly affects the load-bearing capacity of the floor. A longer span requires stronger and more substantial supports to ensure the structural integrity of the floor. Therefore, understanding the span of supports is essential for designing and constructing a safe and stable floor system.

### A principle beam extending from wall to wall of a building supporting the floor joists or floor beams

• A.

Girder

• B.

Floor Joist

• C.

Corbel

• D.

Bridging

A. Girder
Explanation
A girder is a principle beam that extends from wall to wall of a building and supports the floor joists or floor beams. It provides structural support and helps distribute the weight of the floor and any loads placed on it. Girders are typically larger and stronger than joists or beams and are designed to handle heavier loads. They play a crucial role in ensuring the stability and integrity of the building's structure.

### One of a series of parallel timber used to support the floor

• A.

Girder

• B.

Floor Joist

• C.

Corbel

• D.

Bridging

B. Floor Joist
Explanation
A floor joist is a type of parallel timber that is used to support the floor. It is a horizontal structural member that runs parallel to the ground and provides support for the flooring above it. Floor joists are typically spaced at regular intervals and are connected to other structural components such as beams or girders. They play a crucial role in distributing the weight of the floor and any loads placed on it, ensuring the stability and strength of the overall structure.

### A projection anchored in a wall or beam used to support an overhanging member above

• A.

Girder

• B.

Floor Joist

• C.

Corbel

• D.

Bridging

C. Corbel
Explanation
A corbel is a projection anchored in a wall or beam that is used to support an overhanging member above. This architectural element is often used to provide additional support and stability to structures, such as in the construction of arches, balconies, or cornices. By extending the supporting surface, a corbel helps distribute the weight of the overhanging member and prevents it from collapsing or sagging. Therefore, the correct answer to the question is Corbel.

Rate this question:

### A brace or system of braces, placed between joists to stiffen them, to hold them in place and to help distribute the load

• A.

Girder

• B.

Floor Joist

• C.

Corbel

• D.

Bridging

D. Bridging
Explanation
Bridging refers to a brace or system of braces that are placed between joists. The purpose of bridging is to stiffen the joists, hold them in place, and help distribute the load. This additional support helps to prevent the joists from twisting or sagging, ensuring the structural integrity of the floor system.

### A flat porjection from an interior wall or partition at the floor

• A.

Baseboard

• B.

Plank

• C.

Dry wall finish

• D.

Stud

A. Baseboard
Explanation
A baseboard is a flat projection from an interior wall or partition at the floor. It is typically made of wood or another durable material and serves both functional and aesthetic purposes. Baseboards protect the bottom of the wall from damage and provide a finished look to the room. They can also help to hide any gaps or imperfections between the wall and the floor. Overall, baseboards are an essential component in interior design and construction.

### A long, wide, square-sawn thick piece of lumber

• A.

Baseboard

• B.

Plank

• C.

Dry wall finish

• D.

Stud

B. Plank
Explanation
A plank is a long, wide, square-sawn thick piece of lumber. It is commonly used in construction or carpentry projects as a structural element or for creating surfaces such as floors or walls. It is a versatile and sturdy material that can be used in various applications.

### An interior covering material such as gypsum board or plywood

• A.

Baseboard

• B.

Plank

• C.

Dry wall finish

• D.

Stud

C. Dry wall finish
Explanation
Drywall finish refers to an interior covering material, such as gypsum board or plywood, that is used to create a smooth and seamless surface on walls and ceilings. It is applied over the studs, which are the vertical framing members of a wall. Baseboard and plank are not related to the process of finishing drywall. Therefore, drywall finish is the most appropriate answer.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### An upright post or support

• A.

Baseboard

• B.

Plank

• C.

Dry wall finish

• D.

Stud

D. Stud
Explanation
A stud is an upright post or support commonly used in construction. It is typically a vertical wooden or metal beam that provides structural support to walls, ceilings, or floors. Studs are usually placed at regular intervals and serve as the framework for attaching other materials such as baseboards, planks, or drywall finishes.

### A structureal wood made of 3 or more layers of veneer

• A.

Plywood

• B.

Ceiling Joist

• C.

Anchor or anchorage

• D.

Anchor Bolt

A. Plywood
Explanation
Plywood is a correct answer because it is a structural wood product made by bonding together three or more layers of veneer. These layers are typically laid at right angles to each other, which gives plywood its strength and stability. Plywood is commonly used in construction and furniture making due to its durability and resistance to warping and cracking.

• D.

Anchor Bolt

B. Ceiling Joist
Explanation
A ceiling joist is a horizontal structural member that provides support to the ceiling. It is typically attached to the walls or beams of a building and helps to distribute the weight of the ceiling evenly. The ceiling joist acts as an anchor for the ceiling, ensuring that it remains securely in place. It helps to prevent the ceiling from sagging or collapsing and provides stability to the overall structure. Therefore, the correct answer is ceiling joist.

### A steel bolt fixed in a building structure which its threaded portion projecting

• A.

Plywood

• B.

Ceiling Joist

• C.

Anchor or anchorage

• D.

Anchor Bolt

D. Anchor Bolt
Explanation
An anchor bolt is the correct answer because it is a type of fastener that is used to secure objects to concrete or masonry structures. In this case, the steel bolt is fixed in the building structure, and its threaded portion is projecting, indicating that it is likely being used as an anchor bolt to provide stability and support. Plywood and ceiling joist are not relevant to the given description, and while an anchor or anchorage could be related, the specific term "anchor bolt" is a more accurate and precise answer.
