Reading Comprehension (40’) Passage One Research is one of the most important aspects of scientific and engineering practice. A researcher usually works as a
member of a team with other scientists and engineers. He or she is often employed in a laboratory that is financed by government or industry.

Civil engineering research doesn’t include soil mechanics and soil stabilization c. Civil engineering research doesn’t include the development of new structural materials
Passage Two
第 3 页 共 23 页
The current tendency is to develop lighter materials. Aluminum, for example, weighs much less than steel but has many of the same properties. Aluminum beams have already been used for bridge construction and for the framework of a few buildings. Attempts are also being made to produce concrete with more strength and durability, and with a lighter weight. One system that helps cut concrete weight to some extent uses polymers, which are long chainlike compounds used in plastics, as part of the mixture.
  35. The current trend of structural materials is b. a. to develop heavier materials b. to develop lighter materials c. to develop less materials
  36. Aluminum weighs a. a. much less than steel b. the same as steel c. much heavier than steel
  37. Aluminum has c. a. no properties of steel b. few properties of steel c. many of the same properties of steel
  38. Which of the following is true? a. Aluminum beams can’t be used for bridge construction b. Aluminum beams can be used for not only bridge construction but also the framework of a few buildings c. Aluminum beams can’t be used for the framework of a few buildings
Passage Three Steel and concrete also complement each other in another way: they have almost the same rate of contraction and expansion. They therefore can work together in situations where both compression and tension are factors. Steel rods are embedded in concrete to make reinforced concrete in concrete beams or structures where tension will develop. Concrete and steel also form such a strong bonds?the force that unites them?that the steel cannot slip within the concrete. Still another advantage is that steel does not rust in concrete. Acid corrodes steel, whereas concrete has an alkaline chemical reaction, the

opposite of acid.

  42. Concrete has b__. a. some kind of chemical that corrodes steel b. an alkaline chemical reaction, the opposite of acid c. some kind of acid C
Passage Four The employer or promoter of civil engineering works normally determines the conditions of contract, which define the obligations and performances by some form of competitive tendering and any contractor who submits a successful tender and subsequently enters into a contract is deemed in law to have voluntarily accepted the conditions of contract adopted by the promoter. The obligations that a contractor accepts when he submits a tender are determined by the form of the invitation to tender. In most cases the tender may be withdrawn at any time until it has been accepted and may, even then, be withdrawn if the acceptance is stated by the promoter to be ‘subject to formal contract’ as is often the case.
  43. The conditions of contract are normally determined by c. a. the government official b. the contractor

Passage Five Materials are usually described as ‘rock’, ‘loose rock’, or ‘common’, with ‘common’ signifying all material not otherwise classified. Rock, sometimes called ‘solid rock’, nearly always must be drilled and blasted, then loaded with a front-end loader or power shovel into trucks or other hauling units. Blasted rock may be moved or drifted for short distances by means of a bulldozer, which is, in effect, a huge tractor-mounted blade. Loose rock often is dug with loaders or shovels without any previous blasting.
