We are not aware of any testing done specifically for the sound absorption performance of shotcrete. Shotcrete is a method of placing concrete and, once hardened, it should have similar parameters as cast concrete. With shotcrete, one has the ability to use many different finishes, which might influence the sound absorption characteristics. A smooth troweled shotcrete wall would be the most similar to a formed cast-in-place wall. On the other end of the spectrum, a nozzle-finished wall would likely absorb far more sound. A recent design of a concert hall at a major university was to be built with oval concrete or shotcrete perimeter walls covered with fabric curtains for sound purposes. The ceiling was to be suspended nozzle-finished shotcrete.
