8- Cement and Concrete Chemistry Authors: Kurdowski, Wieslaw (2014 )
This monograph describes cement clinker formation. It covers multicomponent systems, clinker phase structures and their reactions with water, hydrate composition and structure, as well as their physical properties. The mineral additions to cement are described as are their influence on cement-paste properties. Special cements are also discussed. The microstructure of concrete is then presented, and special emphasis is given to the role of the interfacial transition zone, and the corrosion processes in the light of cement-phase composition, mineral additions and w/c ratio. The admixtures’ role in modern concrete technology is described with an emphasis on superplasticizer chemistry and its cement-paste rheological modification mechanism. Cement with atypical properties, such as calcium aluminate, white, low energy and expansive cements are characterized. The last part of the book is devoted to special types of concrete such as self compacting and to reactive powders.
9-The Cement Plant Operations Handbook

It shares relevant data of the equipment and its operation criteria. It has been widely distributed by the International Cement Review magazine.
10 – Cement Engineer’s Handbook .
This book has a very well gained reputation and frequently is known just as “Labahn”. Is a very thorough handbook covering all the cement plant areas from quarry to packing plant, it explains subjects that sometimes are overlooked for example: silos, maintenance, lubrication, automation, storage, handling and feeding systems.
11- Handbook for Designing Cement Plants
The book explains theoretical aspects of various processes in making cement at various stages as also steps in sizing of major machinery and auxiliaries. All in all it is a very comprehensive and practical handbook.
The contents of the book are divided in eight sections covering all aspects of designing cement plants from scratch to guide step by step through various stages involved in setting up a cement plant:
2. Machinery used in making cement
3. Techno-economic feasibility studies
4. Civil design and construction
5. Electricals and instrumentation
6. Layouts and detailed engineering
7. Selecting and ordering machinery

15-Cement Chemistry 2nd Edition by H F W Taylor
H F W Taylor was for many years Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at he University of Aberdeen, Scotland. Since 1948, his main research interest has been the chemistry of cement. His early work laid the foundations of our understanding of the structure at the nanometre level of C-S-H, the principal product formed when cement is mixed with water, and the one mainly reponsible for its hardening. Subsequent studies took him into many additional aspects of the chemistry and materials science of cement and concrete. His work has been recognized by Fellowships and by other honours and awards.
