Discussion on Lightweight Underground Structures by P.S. Bulson

The President: We have had the pleasure of listening to a most interesting paper. I am sure there is a considerable future for this line of research. I remember a few years ago being asked by Messrs. Stewart and Lloyds to advise on the possible uses of both thin walled plastic tube and very thin steel tube buried in the ground. I was not able to discover any references to research work in this field. The paper we have had before us tonight has not only given guidance with regard to the carrying capacity but has also provided interesting information about the mode of failure of the tube.
