In construction of shotcrete dome roofs with inflatable forms, the structural thickness of the dome is built out in layers to prevent overloading the support offered by the inflatable form and foam. Thus, your nozzleman qualification panels should be representative of the dome construction methods. This would include shooting orientation (vertical and varying slopes), shooting procedures (layers), and with the most congested reinforcing. When shotcrete is applied in layers, all you need to do is wait for the first layer to stiffen sufficiently (usually called initial set), before applying the next layer. It is not necessary to wait for days before applying the next lift.
