SRMEG International Workshop on Shotcrete Technology in Underground Construction

Shotcrete or Sprayed Concrete was invented in America back in 1907. It has been used worldwide for 112 years and in Singapore for over 40 years. It is now 2019 and there has been many advances in the use of sprayed concrete around the world. SRMEG decided to gather up the top experts on sprayed concrete in the world to come together in sunny Singapore over two-days to speak about the state-of-the-art in different topics of sprayed concrete. Among our esteemed speakers, we will have Prof. Eivind Grov (SINTEF) talk about their latest R & D titled SUPERCON - Sprayed sUstainable PErmanent Robotized CONcrete tunnel lining, Prof. Marc Jolin (Chair of the ACI committee 506 on Shotcreting) share his views on recent developments in shotcrete and speak about the importance of nozzleman certification, Max Eckstein (President of EFNARC) talk about nozzleman certification in the European way and Dr. Roger Olsson & Dr. Karl Gunnar Holter (NGI) share their recent experiences on the use of reinforced ribs of shotcrete and sprayed waterproofing membranes in permanent sprayed concrete linings. In total, we will be having 21 expert speakers from 14 countries sharing their views on the various topics in shotcrete technology over two-days. It is a rare opportunity to see all of them in one single event. It is hoped that this never before organized event showcasing the best and newest in sprayed concrete technologies will help to further promote the idea of permanent sprayed concrete linings in the world.
