Session Overview: 

Shotcrete is a time-proven method to quickly and cost-effectively place concrete with a minimum of formwork while meeting or exceeding the strength and durability of form-and-pour concrete. Today’s shotcrete mixtures have evolved substantially over the last two decades and are some of the most sophisticated concrete mixtures used today. Shotcrete inherently provides enhanced sustainability benefits and allows the engineer maximum flexibility in the shape and thickness of their concrete sections in the repair, repurposing, or strengthening of existing concrete or masonry structures.

Learning Objectives:

Through participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  1. Learn the aspects of both wet and dry-mix shotcrete process. 
  2. Recognize the beneficial properties of materials used for shotcrete placement. 
  3. Understand how shotcrete can creatively be used in a wide variety of repair applications. 
  4. Appreciate the need for certified shotcrete nozzlemen and inspectors, as well as qualified shotcrete contractors.
