Sprayed Concrete 2018

Welcome to the 8th International Symposium on Sprayed Concrete - celebrating 25th Anniversary!

The Norwegian Concrete Association has been a leading participant regarding the use of wet-mix sprayed concrete for many years. It is therefore with great pleasure that we announce the 8th International Symposium on the MODERN USE OF WET-MIX SPRAYED CONCRETE FOR UNDERGROUND SUPPORT. The conference will be held in Norway's third largest city, Trondheim.

One of the goals of the symposium is to share knowledge about sprayed concrete. Any author or speaker is hereby encouraged to conclude clearly the benefits of the specific technology presented and explain why and how this could improve the sprayed concrete-, tunnelling- and mining-industry. In this way, we hope that new research work is “translated” to up-sides, which a contractor might find interesting and useful.

25th Anniversary

In October 1993 the First International Symposium on Sprayed Concrete took place at Fagernes, Norway. A group of dedicated people around the world wanted to inform, discuss and evaluate the topic Sprayed Concrete – Modern Use of Wet Mix Sprayed Concrete for Underground Support. All people interested was invited to join them at Fagernes and more than 100 people came and found a “community” with the same interests. In June 2018 we will arrange the 8th International Symposium on Sprayed Concrete – now in Trondheim, Norway. Many of you have joined us during these 25 years and we do hope to see as many as possible in Trondheim as well. Meet new people – meet people you already know – find time to be sharing knowledge.
It is never too late to learn!! See you in Trondheim?!
