Abstract:

High-Output, automated, remotely controlled shotcrete equipment for use in a dry-mixed shotcrete-based Expedient Repair of Structural Facilities ERSF system were investigated. The most promising piece of equipment was evaluated in the field at Tyndall AFB, Florida. Based on field evaluation results, an ERSF system to repair damaged and destroyed reinforced concrete walls, and other similar structural members, using dry-mixed shotcrete and commercially available shotcrete equipment is a viable concept.
