ABSTRACT
This paper describes results of projects which have been led by the Centre of Applied Geomatics at Military University of Technology since 2008. During this period different solutions were developed to use Global Navigation Satellite Systems as reliable source of construction geometry monitoring. This is crucial to provide studies of buildings and structures safety parameters. CAG MUT developed laboratory and field tests at different objects to create efficient, high accuracy measurement solution for constructions geometry real-time monitoring. Results of the first applications of GNSS based systems on real structures (bridges and high-rise industrial chimneys) in Poland are described in this paper. Results of taken test aim to build efficient and reliable Structural Health Monitoring system for high-rise concrete chimneys. Moreover, measurement and telematics concepts are presented in details.
