Abstract

The use of GPS for monitoring the deflections of large suspension bridges in the UK has been under research at the University of Nottingham and Brunel University for over a decade. The following paper details the main outputs from this work, focusing on the ability of GPS to measure the deflections to the order of a few millimetres, as well as measuring the fundamental frequencies of the bridges.
