shotcrete walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a project where the contractor "informed" me that they were going to
shotcrete a retaining wall in lieu of cast in place (after the footing was
poured). I am not near my code, but as I understand it, anything with bars
greater than #5 requires that test panels are prepared. Also there are
specific requirements for spacing and non-contact lap spices.

I am only aware of a few cases where shotcrete test panels have been
prepared. I know of one project where it took the contractor 8 attempts to
get it right. This project had large congested bars.
