You are on page 1of 3

Use the time during the exam tutorial to go over the References they give you. You will

not need to remember any of the formulae for Max. Moment, Shear and Deflection that re

in the steel manual, they will be given to you on the test. During the tutorial you can

write down the basic ones so you have them next to you as a reference, and you dont

have to go back and forth to the reference screen. Also during that time I wrote down the

formulae that I did memorize just for reference later. That way you are not double

guessing yourself on the units when you are under time pressure. I also marked all the

math questions and did them at the end.

Here is some advice from David Thadeus that I found very helpful:

As far as memorizing the formulas, it is by far more important to know what is involved

in a formula, rather than memorize it without fully comprehending how and when it

applies. I am trying to emphasize that there is a fair amount of "qualitative" questions

about the formulas themselves.

the geometry of the section (r = (SQRT (IA))) and is critical in the assessment of the

slenderness of steel columns. The lesser the radius of gyration, the more likely a steel

column is to buckle (the other factors that affect the slenderness of a steel column are its

un-braced length and how strongly its ends are connected.

Make sure you know the concepts behind the formula, which will in turn help you to

remember the formula itself better. For example in the deflection formula the span of a

beam (L) is to the 3rd power (cubed) where the load (W) is to the 1st power; therefore

increasing the span of a beam will impact its deflection much more than if you increase

the load. Similarly values in the denominator they will impact the result differently than

values is in the numerator.

As far as which formulae to remember, I found that I only needed to remember 3 or 4 and

knowing a bit of algebra you can solve for any variable:

i.e.: Deformation = (P L) (A E)

# Section Modulus formula:

ie: M = Fb S & Fb = M S

3

They will give you (S = b d 6)

Fv = const. V A and same as above know how to solve for each variable

# Coefficient of thermal expansion (n) is the ratio of unit strain to temperature change

and is constant for a given material.

n= L n L t

t

PL P = E

AE A L

# They will give you most of the geometry formulae for the area, moment of Inertia (I)

and Section Modulus (S) for rectangular shapes and other basic shapes, but not the area

of a circle - so remember the formula for the area of a circle and its circumference.

# Although they will give the Deflection formulae, know that Delta L = (Const. Load

3

Span ) (E I)

# Know how to solve for angles and legs of a triangle, all I needed on my test was the

basic:

2 2 2

a +b =c

Sin = opposite hypotenuse, Cosine = adjacent hypotenuse and Tangent = rise run

# For the 2 moving load problem, the formula is in the steel manual, but all you need to

know is how to figure the reactions at the worst case scenario, for shear it would be with

the loads closest to the supports and for bending it would be with the loads at the center,

then treat them as regular point loads.

Math problems are really only about 15% to 20% of the test, the rest of it will be

questions on general knowledge of how structures work, what is the best system for a

given situation, and some on cost in general. Look at the reference list NCARB suggests

for this division and go to the library they have a few of them.

GOOD LUCK!!
