Analysis of possibilities of application of reliability engineering in monitoring vertical displacements
AbstractReliability engineering is widely applied in many technical areas. It is always used when we deal with utilisation of materials, constructed elements, subsystems, being parts of systems or entire objects. In geodesy issues related to reliability engineering have been introduced recently (Wolski 2009). They are connected with city vertical control networks. Those networks, considered as a “material” product, undergo the process of ageing. Researchers dealing with those issues apply reliability engineering to forecast the level of degradation of those networks. Such forecasts allow to commence certain efforts in order to maintain the quality of a network at the level which ensures it correct operations performed for economic purposes. Monitoring of vertical networks is important in order to ensure the safety of many building constructions. The basis for determination of displacements is to ensure the continuation of operation of the reference base in the designed control network. The paper will present analysis and proposals concerning utilisation of elements of reliability engineering for estimations of durability of reference bases and their comparison for utilisation in the process of forecasting the durability of city vertical control networks.
