AbstractAn outline is given of how the measurement of structural responses to different types of load might be used to promote greater understanding of either the structure or the load. For the largest civil engineering structures this type of procedure requires instrumentation to measure large slow movements. A review is presented of some methods that might be used to perform this task. Finally details are given of a prototype system, using a laser and a XY plotter, which has provided some promising field results.
