The Humber Bridge was the subject of an exlensive monitoring campaign during 1990 and 1991 during which a large body of expcrimental data describing the loading and response processes was obtained. Some 70 instrumenls were used to measure wind speed and direction together with displacement, acceleration, rotation and temperature of the structure. The aim of the ex€icise was to validate mathemalical modelling of th€ respoDse of long span bridges to wind and to provide a picture of the relationships betweeu the loading and response p:uamete$. A full description of the instrumentation and monitoring arrangements is given together with some example results,
