Abstract:
The investigation presented in this paper is the First step in a joint project between the Royal Swedish Fortifications Administration (FortF) and the Swedish Rock Mechanics Research Foundation (BeFo). Its aim is better knowledge of shotcrete as a means of rock strengthening. If this aim is reached considerable economic savings could be made since the thicknesses of shotcrete used in practice probably are overestimated because of this lack of knowledge and the psychology of safety.
