ASTM C 33 contains a variety of aggregate gradations. Gradations recommended for shotcrete applications can be found in ASTM C 1436, Standard Specification for Materials for Shotcrete, or ACI 506, Guide to Shotcrete. Note that ACI 506 includes the caveat that “aggregates failing to comply with gradations shown in Table 2.1 may be used if preconstruction testing proves that they give satisfactory results or if acceptable service records are available.”
