Guidelines for shotcreting were written based on the literature survey and shotcreting trials. During shotcreting trials existing Norwegian and Middle-European wet-mix shotcreting concepts were modified. The dosage of accelerator is 1 - 2%, strength properties are satisfactory and watertightness is good. Nowadays the wet-mix shotcrete and steel fibres are approved method is rock engineering. The length of fibres is typically 25 mm and dosage is 60 kg/m3.
