Abstract:
Piers and wharves built from 1915 to 1917 in the San Francisco harbor were recently repaired with dry-mix shotcrete. Sequence and method of work-much of it within the tidal range of San Francisco Bay- are described. Asphaltic curing and coating materials were applied after shotcreting to prolong the life of material in the splash zone. Quality control specimens were cored from shotcreted test panels.
