Abstract:

To evaluate methods for the economical construction of shotcrete personnel shelters, shotcrete arches were cast over various forms a Quonset arch, a flexible plywood shell, a pneumatic airform, and a compacted earth mound. Salvageable Quonsets were found to be the most economical. Wet-mix shotcrete containing coarse aggregate was placed which permitted use of conventional concrete mixes.
