Mr P. Veale (G) (J. Murphy) I am intrigued by the trial erection and would like to know who was involved in it. Was it the people who did the erecting on site who actually did the trial erection, was it the fabricators, or were they one and the same? Was it inspected as the trial erection took place, or was it put up and then inspected as a group?
This paper presents a state-of-the-art review of monitoring the inservice behaviour of structures. Much specialist monitoring has been undertaken in geotechnical and foundation engineering, and this knowledge and expertise is now beginning to be applied to monitoring superstructures. Issues dressed in this paper include reasons for installing a monitoring scheme, in what circumstances and at what stage monitoring is appropriate, and the practical issues of how to proceed in terms of where instrumentation should be situated and what instrumentation and techniques should be used.

The structural engineer on the super highway John Setchell writes from Kings Lynn: A growing community of people from all walks of life regularly sit in front of their computers and, via a small box called a ‘modem’ and the telephone socket on the wall, ‘chat’ to each other. This community is worldwide, but generally speaking the language used is English. (Although some speak American, which is slightly different!) Verulam
