Title:Development of Network-Based Measures and Computational Methods for Evaluating the Redundancy of Transportation Networks
Principal Investigators:Anthony Chen
University:Utah State University
Grant #:DTRT13-G-UTC38 (MAP21)
Project #:MPC-464
Keywords:cooperation, disaster preparedness, disasters and emergency operations, freight transportation, hurricanes, infrastructure, redundancy, resilience (materials), service disruption, terrorism


The objectives of this research proposal are twofold: (1) to develop network-based measures for systematically characterizing the redundancy of transportation networks, and (2) to develop computational methods for evaluating the network-based redundancy measures. The proposed research on network redundancy can be considered as a critical component in assessing network resiliency and also designing a more resilient transportation network against disruptions.
