An automatic, remotely controlled system for monitoring the inservice behaviour of the Foyle Bridge has been developed. Results of both static and dynamic test loadings of the structure are described. Preliminary results of the behaviour of the bridge under a variety of wind-load conditions are reported. T.D. Sloan, J.W. Boyd and A. Thompson

It is with some apprehension, and after not a little procrastination, that I eventually agreed to my address being published as a viewpoint. W.H. Walker
