Ft. Randall Dam & Spillway

Pickstown, SD - 2014

Project Description

Part of the Fort Randall Dam and Spillway was damaged during heavy flooding. Hydrodemolition was completed and project specifiers recommended a shotcrete repair mixture with minimal shrinkage because the concrete panels were highly restrained by the spillway wall and gate structures. FORTA-FERRO® was used in order to reduce shrinkage cracking, increase residual strength. The use of fiber allowed for the replacement of additional steel reinforcement. In addition to the increased residual strength, the fiber reinforcement also increases the impact resistance of the mix design by approximately 100% while decreasing the plastic shrinkage by 20%.
