Infrastructure Repair & Rehabilitation Using Shotcrete â€“ An ASA Compilation
ASA recently released a new compilation of papers focusing on shotcrete’s use in the repair and rehabilitation of infrastructure. The 34-page black and white soft cover book, “Infrastructure Repair & Rehabilitation Using Shotcrete,” is a compilation of 8 previously published papers in ASA’s Shotcrete magazine.
The document was originally created for distribution at the recent “International Bridge Conference” held in Pittsburgh, PA. Positive response to the compilation has moved ASA to make the document available to the entire concrete industry.
Copies of the compilation are available for a special price of $9.00 US. Pricing includes shipping. To place an order, contact ASA at 248-848-3780.

ASA has replaced its mass e-mails with this twice a month E-Newsletter.

In exchange, we ask that you add info at shotcrete dot org to your “allowed e-mail addresses”.
