The subject of this paper is of great current interest to bridge engineers and I should like to add a few comments. L.A. Clark
The problems of interaction between manmade structures and the ground which nature provides to support them are always with us; we were glad that the Institution's Symposium in May to launch its excellent state-of-the-art report was so well attended. Discussion was lively and interesting; Sam Thorburn and his committee are to be commended for producing a stimulating and useful study. Verulam
Clients, consultants, observers and users often express concern when perceptible motions of buildings, bridges, offshore and other fixed structures occur. In this paper human reactions to such vibration are discussed and magnitudes of motion caused by a variety of environmental and other forces which should prove acceptable to the majority of people who use the structures, and many purposes are suggested.
