BONIFACE, A.. Some aspects of international shotcreting practice. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2008, vol.108, n.12, pp.719-723. ISSN 2411-9717.
The International Tunnel and Underground Space Association (ITA) has a number of working groups (WG) that meet at least once a year. One of these is WG12, 'Use of Shotcrete', of which the author is a member. The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to a number of topics that were discussed at the WG12 meetings held in April and September 2008; and also to a number of other matters that arose from the presentation of thirty-four papers at the 5th International Symposium on Sprayed Concrete held in Lillehammer, Norway between 21 and 24 April 2008
