Abstract:
Some rebound is an inevitable consequence of a shotcrete operation. The many various factors leading to excessive rebound were identified and appreciated by those familiar with shotcrete long ago. Studebaker (1939) was only one of the early researchers. However, the relative significance of many of these factors is not yet well understood. The magnitude of rebound is difficult to determine and "eyeball estimates" cannot always be relied upon to base conclusions about the various factors of rebound.
