Title: The Yard For Building Concrete Ships at Wilmngton, N.C.
Author(s): Archibald G. Monks
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 428-432
Abstract:There is little experience yet in design of concrete ships and less in design of plants as compared with the well-established building of steel or wooden ships.
