We present a hybrid approach to monitoring the stability of flood defence structures equipped with sensors. This approach combines the finite element modelling with the artificial intelligence for real-time signal processing and anomaly detection. This combined method has been developed for the UrbanFlood early warning system and successfully tested on a large-scale sea dike during a simulated strong storm with very high water level. The artificial intelligence module detects the onset of dike instability after being trained on the data from the Virtual Dike finite element simulation. © 2011 IEEE.
