The Superstructure of the Tay Road Bridge. Discussion on the paper by W. A. Fairhurst CBE MIStructE and A. Beveridge BSc AMlStructE AMICE

Mr. E.N. Underwood (Past President), invited by the Chairman to open the discussion, said he had thoroughly enjoyed the authors’ clear description of what was a masterpiece of bridge engineering. He agreed with the Chairman that lessons learned from Brunel and Robert Stephenson could only emphasize what brilliant engineers they had been. Modern experience had proved that their systems could be applied economically today in spite of all the other modern developments.
