    Hi all.

    From an asset management point of view, what useful life figures are being used for shotcrete - with soil nails/rock bolts or as separate components.

    Regards & Thanks

    ​Good question
    If done properly( ie strip drainage correctly bolted  etc) in a non coastal environment 50 years
    but in reality all geo jobs should be looked a like a car and continually monitored and maintained.
