FAST SET SHOTCRETE IN CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION

Shotcrete as a supporting material for tunnel and for tunnel lining has not been used a great deal in North America. This paper discusses the technique of coarse aggregate shotcreting and how it is being used today. In the past shotcreting was used on a limited basis, mainly as a rock sealant technique. With advances in technology and equipment, an increased use of coarse aggregate shotcrete in tunnels and underground mines is expected. The main thrust is coming from the ability to use accelerators in wet mix shotcrete.
