Abstract: While several excellent books are available on various types of construction plant and construction methods, a large part of such information lies buried in individual and fugitive articles usually presenting a general description of a particular construction operation rather than of the plant and methods itself. A Selected Bibliography on Construction Methods and Plant Applied to Bridges, Buildings, Dams, Hydro-electric Plants, Roads, Sea-Walls, Sewers, Tunnels, Etc. performs a valuable service to members in the construction industry as a special bibliography in which a large number of technical magazines, society publications, and books are thoroughly indexed with reference to construction plant and construction methods, thus making readily available the information on this subject. In Part I, the references are grouped under the various divisions or types of construction such as Bridges, Dams, Buildings, etc. In Part II, the references are grouped according to the different types of equipment such as Air Compressors, Concrete Mixers, etc.

Subject Headings: Infrastructure construction | Construction methods | Bibliographies | Dams | Hydro power | Highways and roads | Sea walls
