Hi everyone

Please help. Does anybody know how to check verticality of a steel column with total station as I have to check erection deflections. If so, anybody would be willing to take me trough the process??

Thank you.

RE: Hi everyone Please help. Does an

You should be able to put a target on the base and one up about 10' The readings will give you the tilt (deflections).

you mean position the total station along the line of the deflection?

RE: Hi everyone Please help. Does an

Your total station should be able to read the location of the targets with great precision and should record the relative positions.

You may refer to the targets as prisms, too.
