Abstract

The use of GPS for monitoring the deformations and deflections of large suspended bridges has been shown to be a viable tool. The following paper details initial trials carried out by researchers in the UK, investigating the use of GPS to measure the long term deformations and short term deflections of a viaduct carrying six lanes of motorway. The paper outlines the configuration of a number of receivers placed on the structure, as well as provisional results, showing the feasibility of GPS for such monitoring.
