In order to build a house the civil engineer must consider many important factors: the choice of materials, their physical properties, availability, cost, etc. Materials to be used for structural purposes should meet a number of requirements. In most cases they should be strong, durable and fire-resistant.

Steel, concrete, stone, timber and brick are the most commonly used building materials. Timber is the oldest structural material known to mankind. It is light, cheap and easy to work with. But timber has certain disadvantages: it burns and decays. Timber used for building purposes is divided into two groups: softwoods and hardwoods. Softwoods are chiefly used in construction, while hardwoods are generally used for decorative purposes.

Bricks were known many thousands of years ago. They are molded from clay into the required shape. Bricks are usually rectangular in shape. They are hardened by being fired in a kiln.

Concrete is one of the most important building materials. It is difficult to imagine modern structures without concrete. Concrete is made by mixing together a proportion of fine and coarse aggregates with cement and water. Crushed stone, broken brick and gravel are considered to be coarse aggregates. Sand is the best fine aggregate. Both quarry and river sands are extensively used.

Reinforced concrete is a combination of two of the strongest structural materials available - concrete and steel. There are two kinds of reinforced concrete: with ordinary reinforcement and concrete with prestressed reinforcement. Concrete is reinforced by the incorporation of steel rods.

Plastics and glass reinforced plastics are comparatively new building materials, but they have already found many uses in modern construction. Plastics combine all the best characteristics of building materials with good insulating properties. Plastics are produced from chemicals. Glass-reinforced plastics are produced from polyester resins reinforced with glass fibres. Plastics and glass-reinforced plastics are the materials to be used in modern construction on a large scale.

A New Apartment Downtown

A: Here is a letter from my older sister. They have moved into a new apartment

downtown. She's happy!

B: Oh, what about going there for our winter holidays?

A: No, it isn't. There are not many four- or five-storey buildings there yet.

There are a lot of small houses and cottages with gardens, orchards and vegetable plots there. Our parents have a house like that. It's a very beautiful little house surrounded with trees and flower beds. But it doesn't have any modern conveniences.

B: So, your sister and her husband have a room and their mother has a room

of her own. Their daughter has a room as well. And the fourth room?

a gas-range, built-in cupboards.

A: They're four: my sister, her husband, her mother-in-law and their little


B: It is different from our big city with crowds of people everywhere...

A: Not yet. But they are lucky that they have such a good apartment.

B: Your sister's husband is an engineer, isn't he?

A: Not a bad idea. There are many fields and woods in the area. The scenery is very beautiful, the air is pure, the snow is always white.

B: How many are they in the family?

A: I think, it's for the family or for their guests.

B: Are they on the phone yet?
