Constituent Materials of Shotcrete:

  • Cement
  • Supplementary Cementitious Materials
  • Aggregates
  • Mixing Water
  • Chemical Admixtures
  • Fibre Reinforcement
  • Steel Mesh or Bar Reinforcement


Construction Sequence:



Shotcrete equipment selections are determined by some considerations such as the shotcrete type (wet or dry), the expected finish time, access to the site, material availability and proposed shotcrete delivery system.

Shotcrete spraying can be done by hand-spraying and robotic spraying.

Quality control of shotcrete by commencing several tests based on relevant testing standard for sprayed concrete and specific design on Australian States: Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland.
