The surveillance of engineering structures like dams is an interdisciplinary task and mainly focused on the assessment of stability and reliability of the objects to be monitored. To show the co-operation of the disciplines involved in a comprehensible manner, it is suitable to use system analysis approaches. Structural deformations analysis by means of system analysis is explained in the following with an example of a dam. The determination of the dam deformations is demonstrated by an integration of computed and measured data by using Kalman Filtering.
