Has anyone had experience using double twist mesh with sprayed concrete? If so has anyone had issues with shadowing? We are concerned that the traditional weld mesh won't be malleable enough to conform to the irregular and uneven slope face and are considering alternatives. The Sprayed Concrete Association states that mesh with apertures between 50 and 150 mm and wire diameters of less than 10 mm, the mesh is generally considered acceptable. The rock mass is weak; hence we would prefer to use mesh reinforced sprayed concrete rather than fibre reinforced concrete. I have seen reference to some tests carried out with different mesh varieties in an older thread, but haven't been able to find any further information. Thanks.
