The aim of this thesis is to analyze four different constructions of GNSS-antenna monuments with respect to deformations due to solar radiation, temperature variations and wind. It was commissioned by Lantmäteriet, the Swedish mapping, cadastral and land registration authority and realized in cooperation between Vienna University of Technology and Chalmers University of Technology. In the first part of the project a simulation with a finite element modelling program was calculated. The values gained from the simulations reached a maximum of 1.4 mm due to wind, 1.2 mm due to solar radiation and 0.8 mm due to thermal expansion. In the second part outdoor measurements were carried out at Onsala Space Observatory where a sample of each monument type was installed. With modern Leica TS30 total stations and precision retro-reflection prisms displacements of up to 4 mm were measured. The mast that Lantmäteriet suggested, deformed the least compared to the other three. Its maximum displacement in height and position was less than one millimeter.
