During shotcrete construction, owners, architects, engineers, and contractors want to verify the quality of shotcrete being placed. Shotcrete cores are normally extracted from shotcrete sample panels or when needed from as-placed shotcrete for evaluation of shotcrete quality (ACI 506.4R). In addition to the routine tests such as compressive strength or other material quality tests required by project specification, visual examination of shotcrete cores by an experienced licensed design professional (LDP) is an important tool for evaluation of shotcrete quality.

Keywords: cores; encapsulation; visual evaluation; reinforcing bars; voids.
