Vermont-Concrete Online Practice Test

These are actual questions from our online practice test.

We have included a question from each chapter of the test. Every question will be multiple choice. The answers are not included with the sample.

Sample Questions

# Chapter Title Question
14 Basic - Blueprint Reading and Plans The three basic steps to estimating a concrete project are, estimate of how much material that you will be using, labor and pricing.
13 Bidding and Estimating What type of estimating forces the study of the plans and specs, identify and cost out all the materials piece by piece, and calculate the hours of labor on job tasks?
11 Concrete Safety After the concrete is deposited in the desired area by chute, pump, or wheelbarrow, it should be pushed—not lifted—into final position with a __________.
1 Concrete, Mixtures, Strength and Pressure How would you go about cleaning concrete off of steel form stakes other than beating them with a hammer?
8 Excavating Sitework For maximum compaction, material backfilled into a trench should be placed with __________ in. lifts.
7 Excavating, Layout, Drainage and Compaction To prevent cracking and joint spalling you need to support the slab at those locations where it can behave like a __________ and bend into the subbase.
2 Formwork Forms should not be removed until the concrete has achieved __________% of it’s strength.
3 Foundations __________ are long columns that are driven into soft ground where they support their load by friction with the soil rather than by a firm layer at their lower end.
12 Job Safety Actinolite, Amosite, Amphibole, Chrysotile, and Tremolite are all synonyms for what?
15 Mathematics and Calculations 5/8 - 3/10 = 25/40 - 12/40 =
10 Miscellaneous A/An __________ is a slab of concrete extending beyond the entrance to a building, particularly at an entrance for vehicular traffic.
5 Reinforcing Steel, Rebar and Ties The adjustable column form is a durable, rugged system that quickly form column dimensions in 1" and 2" increments. __________ psf allowable pressure Standard 3/4" chamfer on all columns create smooth edge finish 3/16" steel form face provides an excellent finish, standard 3/4" Speed Bolts join forms, no internal ties required, up to 48" square columns.
4 Shotcrete What are some of the factors that determine the quality of the shotcrete?
9 Tools and Supplies A __________ is an implement consisting of a broad blade or scoop attached to along handle.
6 Unbonded Post-Tensioned, Mathematics and Calculations Materials that exhibit body couples and couple stresses in addition to moments produced exclusively by forces are called __________ materials. These materials are then those materials with only moments of forces. In the classical branches of continuum mechanics the development of the theory of stresses is based on these materials. Therefore, the sum of all applied forces and torques (with respect to the origin of the coordinate system) in the body can be given by
mathcal F = int_V mathbf a,dm = int_S mathbf T,dS + int_V 
homathbf b,dV
mathcal M = int_S mathbf r 	imes mathbf T,dS + int_V mathbf r 	imes 
homathbf b,dV
