Rezumat/Abstract. The process of application of concrete and mortar by shotcrete was invented in the US at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1907, the American Carl Akeley used this method to repair the facade of the Columbian Museum in Chicago (the old Palace of Fine Arts of the World’s Columbian Exhibition). In 1911, Carl Akeley received a patent for the "cement gun". At present, the shotcrete is used for both new construction and repair/ rehabilitation of old buildings. The aim of this study was to present, analysis and synthesis of the references existing in the literature. Based on the literature, one can claim that are currently two methods of shotcrete: dry and wet.
