Rod Howe kindly offered to host the 15th meeting of the Bridge Owners' Forum at the British Waterways Yorkshire office in Leeds. The meeting took place on 14th June 2005.
The meeting included a discussion of several research proposals academic researchers from several universities. These proposals were submitted in confidence. The minutes include details of these proposals. For this reason the minutes are currently available to BOF members only. (A version of the minutes excluding these details is in preparation.)
After the meeting, John Menzies wrote this draft brief with some suggestions detailing how BOF might handle project proposal submissions for 2007/8.
Most of the following proposals were originally submitted for discussion at BOF12. Of these, seven were shortlisted for further discussion. Campbell has since received revised versions of two of the original proposals, and one new proposal from Prof. Ian May.
