Abstract
The weight and the centre of gravity in the horizontal plane of large structures of nearly all dimensions can be determined using mobile measuring systems.
The overall system developed by the authors is of modular design and can be used for almost all large structures. It has been developed as a self-sufficient measuring system for out-door application. Using radio-controlled data transmission interfaces and heavy-duty accumulator cells for voltage supply the bothersome cable connection between the individual modules could be dispensed with. Data acquisition is achieved by means of a measuring data acquisition software on a commercial PC: In order to increase the flexibility of application mobile calculation units are preferred. The measuring system is presently being used in several variants on two large shipyards.
