Steel fiber reinforced shotcrete (SFRS) costs less, has a lower rate of rebound and allows modern excavating equipment to advance with fewer interruptions than conventional shotcrete. SFRS has become popular in the U.S. and Canada in the last five to seven years. Conventional concrete design, equipment and laboratory tests have heavily influenced shotcrete mix design. SFRS can be made by either the dry or wet mix methods. Adding microsilica, also known as silica fume, to the reinforced shotcrete mix enhances the SFRS properties.
