Due to their high penetrability, cosmic ray muons may provide a way to monitor the alignment and possible long term deformations of large structures, such as historical buildings or other large civil structures. The basic idea behind this possibility is to look for any misalignment between a set of position-sensitive detectors fixed to different parts of the structure with respect to the original alignment condition. In this presentation we discuss the possibility to employ the Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPC) of the Extreme Energy Events (EEE) Project as muon tracking detectors to monitor the long-term stability of civil buildings and structures when used in conjunction with additional detectors.
