Since shotcrete is pneumatically placed against a one-sided form there is no liquid concrete pressure against the form. When bench shooting vertical walls the majority of pressure from the high velocity impact is carried by the previously placed concrete as the concrete is stacked. Plus, this pressure is very localized, only affecting a small zone immediately adjacent to the impact area of the material stream. Here is an article on a research project that quantified the force

From the paper conclusion “In normal spraying conditions, wet- and dry-mix shotcretes produced a force on the panel of about 45 and 20 lb (200 and 90 N), respectively. The maximum load recorded is 87 lb (389 N) and it was observed in simulating a water plug.”

If your shotcrete form is exposed to wind forces before placing shotcrete, you may want to consider the wind pressure that may be expected across the entire form during construction to keep the form intact. This should be much less than the 50 lb/ft2 pressure you mention. ACI formwork design is intended for cast concrete where liquid concrete is contained within a two-sided form and is NOT applicable to shotcrete placement. Some sources show a 60 mi/hr (100 km/ hr) wind exerting about 10 lb/ft2 (50 kg/m2) on a vertical wall.
