Abstract:
Accelerators are commonly used in both the wet and dry process Shotcrete to impart accelerated setting and accelerated strength gain. It is not the purpose of this paper to discuss why accelerated strength gain and setting time are of advantage in ground support, but rather to explain what these accelerators are and how they perform.
