This guide covers many aspects of shotcrete construction including materials, equipment, crew organization, preliminary preparation, proportioning, shotcrete placement, and quality control. An appendix on suggested methods of payment is also included. New construction, repair, linings, coatings, refractories, underground support, and other special applications are discussed.

However, procedures vary from one region to another, and adjustments may be required to meet the needs of the particular project.
