Shutter Ties in Unlined Concrete Water-retaining Structures. Discussion on the paper by P. Jackson BSc AMlStructE AMICE

Mr. C. B. Stone (Vice-president) said it was a common failing of consultants not to admit that their Structures leaked; however, he himself did not know of any case of leakage due to shutter ties. Mr. Jackson had shown there was a weakness but Mr. Stone thought that, if there had been a low water/cement ratio and thorough compaction by vibration, the cavity would not have formed.
