Shotcrete Today: The Original 3D Concrete Printing

Presented By:

Charles Hanskat, P.E.

Executive Director - American Shotcrete Association

About the Topic

This presentation will introduce shotcrete placement in a wide variety of structural and geotechnical concrete applications. Shotcrete is a time-proven method to quickly and cost-effectively place concrete with a minimum of formwork yet meeting or exceeding the strength of form-and-pour concrete construction. Shotcrete inherently provides enhanced sustainability benefits in comparison to form-and-pour concrete and allows the designer maximum flexibility in shape and thickness of their concrete sections.

Attendees will gain a basic understand of the capabilities and benefits of the shotcrete process in both new and repair applications. The presentation is appropriate for all those involved in the concrete construction industry including engineers, architects, contractors, inspectors, material suppliers, and students. The seminar will cover:

  • Definition and History of Shotcrete
  • Shotcrete Processes (What's wet-mix, dry-mix, gunite)
  • Shotcrete Applications
  • Shotcrete Sustainability
  • Environmental Conditions
  • Surface Preparation for Repair
  • Reinforcement Details
  • Shotcrete Mix Components
  • Shotcrete Placement Fundamentals
  • Finishes and Curing
  • Field Quality Control and Assurance
  • Qualification of the Shotcrete Team
  • ACI Nozzleman Certification
  • Useful Tools and Resources
