Shotcrete Solutions Product details Paperback Language: Although it is written especially for the dry-mix process, the principles also apply to the wet-mix shotcrete process. Learn more about Amazon Prime. In dry-mix shotcrete, this either translates into a reduced water-cement ratio or improved placement and reinforcing bar encapsulation properties. In short, combined with a well-distributed gradation, larger aggregates usually generate better compaction and reduce the required amount of cement paste to an optimized level to build up a given layer of shotcrete.

Additionally, when shotcrete is chosen as a repair material, a higher content of coarse aggregate will more closely reflect that of the parent concrete, resulting in a repair shoycrete with more compatible hardened properties for example, modulus of elasticity, coefficient of thermal expansion, and creep.

Quality certificate reports for the aggregates should always, as with traditional cast-in-place concrete, be reviewed before the beginning of any project. These benefits can be as simple as improved shootability and r disruptions due to plugging or as complex as reduced shrinkage and improved long-term durability. In all cases, the use of a coarse aggregate gradation leads to an in-place concrete composition that is closer to that of cast-in-place concrete.

In dry-mix shotcrete applications, the use of a coarse aggregate gradation reduces the in-place paste content, leaving shotcrfte installed material with an increased aggregate content.

We must always remember, however, that shotcrete is simply a method of placing concrete. See all free Kindle reading apps. The minimum thickness of any shotcrete application should always be a minimum of three times the maximum diameter of the largest aggregate.

This article is written to show and explain why the use of a coarse, well-graded aggregate phase is beneficial to the quality of the shotcrete.

Get to Know Us. These aggregates can have t negative effects on shotcrete, such as reducing the shootabilty, forcing reduced hose length plugand causing a more difficult finishability. The same consideration should be given when designing a concrete mixture that is applied using afi shotcrete process. Although there is no standard regarding guive maximum amount of elongated particles, it is safe to say that these particles should be minimized and controlled even more so than in cast-in-place concrete.

By minimizing the cement paste content of a given shotcrete mixture, total shrinkage is minimized, which greatly reduces the risks r cracking and bond failure at the substrate and shotcrete interface.

The Effect on Shootability and Paste Content of the In-Place Shotcrete It is well known in the cast-in-place industry that, for a given mixture design, increasing the size whotcrete the larger aggregate increases the workability of the fresh concrete or, conversely, reduces the water demand. Whereas this assumption may be correct, the overall rebound values found for shotcrete mixtures with a fine aggregate gradation are comparable with mixtures produced with a coarser aggregate gradation, when both are shot at their wettest stable consistency.

It is often assumed that larger particles tend to rebound more than those found in a finer aggregate gradation. It has been proven that the transportation of dry material through a shotcrete hose is more efficient when the mixture contains coarse aggregates.

We would never design a cast-in-place concrete mixture without coarse aggregate. Application thickness is another aspect of the shotcrete process that should be considered when evaluating the gradation of shotcrete aggregates. Visit our Help Pages. Related Posts

We ugide always remember, however, that shotcrete is simply a method of placing concrete. The abrasion of coarse aggregate against the inside lining of the hose reduces the cement buildup and improves material flow.

In conclusion, the use of coarse aggregate in shotcrete mixtures will provide a wide range of benefits to both plastic and hardened properties.
