About the test

The mechanical engineering test assesses candidates' knowledge of concepts, principles, and best practices in various engineering branches such as mechanics, thermodynamics, material science, and electricity.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good mechanical engineer needs to understand engineering physics, mathematics principles, and materials science in order to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.

This online test requires candidates to choose correct answers about problems from different engineering fields and to calculate solutions of various engineering problems.

Materials Properties

A company is developing a temperature alarm, based on the schema below, that should close an electric circuit when the temperature rises above 150°C:

Temperature Alarm

  Linear coefficient of thermal expansion (x10-6K-1) Volumetric mass density (kg/m3) Melting point (°C)
Brass 13 8600 1000
Copper 17 8940 1100
Iron 11.8 7870 1500
Mercury 181 13540 -39
Polystyrene 70 1060 100
Steel 12 7800 1600

Based on available materials and their properties, choose materials for the temperature alarm that require the smallest temperature difference to do the task.

For Material 1: ___

For Material 2: ___

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
