The main objective of the session is to publicize and present the recently published new ACI 506 “Guide to Shotcrete” (published in July 2016) and demonstrate how it is now in sync with our specification document (ACI 502.6-13). The attendees’ outcome is a better knowledge of the recent (and most importantly shotcrete-related) ACI documents (Guide + Spec) and how to navigate them, as well as state-of-the-art news on technical shotcrete developments. Following this main theme for the session, the attendees will also learn of the detailed differences between shotcrete and concrete (both technically and contractually) and receive clear directive on selecting the dry or the wet process for a given job. Moreover, two selected technical presentations will bring forward the most recent development and research on the effect of bond quality on reinforcement development length and on the control of rheology to further improve inplace strength and durability.
