Abstract:
My first experience in shotcrete was in 1966 on the Glendora Tunnel in California. At that time Shotcrete was considered by many to be one of the dark occult arts. . .Since that time, meetings such as this and the continuing exchange of information between all of you in the industry has dispelled the myths. We have a better understanding of the realities of this remarkable tool we call shotcrete. . .I would like to break my discussion of shotcrete equipment into three topics. The shotcrete machines or guns; The material delivery systems; Accessory items.
