Title: Early Age Strength Properties of Shotcrete
Author(s): Grant L. Anderson and Melvin E. Poad
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 277-296
Abstract:The Bureau of Mines has sponsered contract research to determine physical properties of fast setting shotcrete to obtain basic engineering data important to its use in underground support systems. This report presents early strength properties of shotcrete placed under simulated field conditions using standard wet and dry processes and commercially available cements and accelerators. Bench test results determine fast set agents and cements that were used in the shotcrete program. Bench test results were evaluated for effect on rate of setting and strength of mortar cubes. The shotcrete program evaluated several cements, as stated throughtout the article.
