Abstract. The high-speed videogrammetric measurement system, which provides a convenient way to capture three-dimensional (3D) dynamic response of moving objects, has been widely used in various applications due to its remarkable advantages including non-contact, flexibility and high precision. This paper presents a distributed high-speed videogrammetric measurement system suitable for monitoring of large-scale structures. The overall framework consists of hardware and software two parts, namely observation network construction and data processing. The core component of the observation network is high-speed cameras to provide multiview image sequences. The data processing part automatically obtains the 3D structural deformations of the key points from the captured image sequences. A distributed parallel processing framework is adopted to speed up the image sequence processing. An empirical experiment was conducted to measure the dynamics of a double-tube five-layer building structure on the shaking table using the presented videogrammetric measurement system. Compared with the high-accuracy total station measurement, the presented system can achieve a sub-millimeter level of coordinates discrepancy. The 3D deformation results demonstrate the potential of the non-contact high-speed videogrammetric measurement system in dynamic monitoring of large-scale shake table tests.
