Abstract

Natural and/or man-made disasters have become serious threats to the world and how to alleviate such threats is a critical issue. Resilience assessment, evaluation and improvement for transportation systems should be incorporated within transportation planning process as well as emergency management operations. The advantage of the resilience assessment is that the assessment can evaluate the ability of recovery from disruption. Based on the results of assessments and evaluations of resilience, the planners can design overall transportation planning steps for the long-term plans and traffic strategies can be proposed to improve the performance of network for short-term management. In this research, resilience is qualitatively defined based on different indicators. Numerical experiments through simulation are conducted based on a city network to illustrate these resilience indicators.
