Using Shotcrete for
Concrete Repair and
Rehabilitation

This half day seminar on May 4th will consist of two, one hour presentations on the shotcrete process and how it can be used for the repair and rehabilitation of concrete. Following the presentations, Porter Construction will be demonstrating the process using materials supplied by Sika Corporation, BASF and Euclid Chemicals.  Both wet and dry shotcrete processes will be demonstrated. The two, one hour sesssions will be presented by Mr. Charles Hanskat of the American Shotcrete Association (ASA). These sessions have been approved by AIA for 1hr of  CPD credit. ASA can send certificates of attendance to those who attend, sign in and request them.

Session Details:

Course Title: Introduction to the Shotcrete Process

Course Description: The course will provide Engineers, Architects & Specifiers with a basic understanding of the shotcrete process for placing concrete in a wide variety of structural and geotechnical applications. In addition, attendees will gain a basic understanding of the capabilities and benefits of the shotcrete process for placing concrete in both new and repair applications, and a beginning knowledge on how to specify shotcrete work for desired results.

Number of Course Learning Units: 1 (length of course – 1 hour equals 1 unit)

Learning Objectives

1.      Understanding of the basic process for both wet and dry mix shotcrete.

2.      History of the shotcrete process and the shotcrete references / resources available in support of the process.

3.      Basic understanding of the uses and the advantages of shotcrete process.

4.      Understanding of the critical issues to be addressed in a shotcrete project specification.

Course Title: Shotcrete for Repair and Rehabilitation of Concrete Structures

Course Description: The course will build on our session “Introduction to the Shotcrete Process” with specific reference to the repair and rehabilitation of concrete structures. Attendees will gain a basic understanding of the capabilities of the process for repair and rehabilitation of concrete structures, and a beginning knowledge on how to specify and inspect shotcrete work for repair projects.

Number of Course Learning Units: 1 (length of course – 1 hour equals 1 unit)

Learning Objectives:
