Structures Basics

Information summarized from the Marinaro Document “ARE STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS 101” Pre-Test Outline created by Arch Exam Academy   Leading up to the Exam: Preparation There is the right way, the wrong way and the NCARB way. Before entering the test room decide what to use for span limits.  If you do not, you will waste  Read more

GENERAL STRUCTURES 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 Read more

“Right Hand Rule” If the force on the beam creates a positive reaction, you can apply the “right hand rule” in which case the reaction about a point creates a clockwise motion about a certain point. An easier way of determining the sign of the bending moment at any section is that upward forces always Read more
