The paper attempts briefly to record and describe the construction of this unique combination of structure and machine, and the care and attention provided over the years to produce, in the opinion of the authors, a regeneration of the best known bridge in the world, now approaching its centenary. L.W. Groome, W.I. Halse, E.M. Longton and D.L. Stephens
Mostly micros The use of microcomputers in structural engineering, which was raised in this column several months ago, has attracted considerable interest among our readers; the correspondence this month has been concerned predominantly with their application and the resulting implications for many of us.

During recent years, there have been numerous innovations in concrete technology which have resulted in the availability of materials with properties that are very different from those of conventional structural concretes. These materials include fibre-rein forced and polymer-modified concretes, high-strength concrete, macrodefect-free cements, self-levelling and high workability concretes, and many others. In addition, there has been greater interest in the use of waste materials such as ground granulated blas[furnace slag, pulverised .fuel ash or silica fume. Some of these materials have found no immediate application. J.L. Clarke and C.D. Pomeroy
