This work offers contractors, engineers, consultants and specifiers authoritative coverage of the design, installation and performance of sprayed concrete. It includes current information on materials technology, plus detailed applications to new construction, rock stabilization and support, tunnelling, refractories, fire-damage repair, and repair of retaining walls, arches and curved roofs. The work covers both US and UK standards throughouts. The book is aimed at practising and consulting engineers, contractors and academics in civil and structural engineering, concrete and materials technology. It should be also useful as a reference for postgraduates and advanced undergraduates in these disciplines.
