Text Box: Monitoring Deformation of Small Structural Models Using Close-Range Photogrammetry
Text Box: Objectives
The major topic for this thesis project is monitoring deformation of small models of civil structure by close-range photogrammetry. The small model is a parabolic arches shaped bridge model. The main object of this project has been separated into five sub-topics/tasks. The tasks are:
Familiarise with existing close-range photogrammetry equipment and software package.
Undertake camera calibration at the same scale of the field measurements for the proposed project.
To measure the deformation of six small-scale bridges under vertical loading for a civil structural engineering project.
Compare and analyse close-range photogrammetry results with LVDT results on number of bridge models
To validate the close-range photogrammetry measurement accuracies and relative precision of measured targets
