Monitoring the Inservice Behaviour of the Foyle Bridge

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
