Identification of the reference base for horizontal displacements by “all-pairs method”

Mieczysław Adam Kwaśniak


In studies of movement essential element of the correctness of the obtained results is correct identification of the reference base.One method forsuch identification, referred to as"all-pairs method", is to examine theinsignificance ofthe mutualdisplacementof potentialreference points in all combinations of pairs.It is awell knownexact method of identification, butits use inpracticeis limited tothe studyof vertical displacements. In this work wepresent the possibility of application of this methodinthe studyof horizontal displacements. Numerical example illustrates the calculation procedure of the proposed method.
