Responding to Mr. Graham's paper on the Bureau of Reclamation's work with polymer shotcrete - The Bureau of Mines has also investigated the use of polymeric materials for "shotcrete" linings, and at the present time, we cannot be as optimistic as Mr. Graham on flammability and toxicity.

[An outlined article] If shotcrete is being considered for use in support of an underground excavation, a problem of ground support has been encountered, or a potentional problem is anticipated. Identification of the problem is the first step in its solution. Most problems of ground support can be placed in one or more of four classes. . .

"Seven years ago, a friend of mine came to me on our tunnel job in the Tehachapi Mountains and in a very low voiced, secretive, manner told me of a substance that would solve all my bad ground problems. He said this was a substance that was easy to mix, simple to apply, and would setup immediately and be as strong as concrete. After seven years of shotcrete experience, if I were to repeat my version of this, I would say that it was difficult to mix properly; the devil to apply; and if you do everything right it will set-up quickly and be as strong as concrete. . .Let us talk about our Tehachapi Tunnels for a few moments, about some of the things that we learned and about some of the mistakes that we made.
