This paper presents a fuzzy optimization model to solve multicriteria decision making (MCDM) systems based on a fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (fuzzy AHP). To deal with the imprecise judgments of decision makers, a fuzzy AHP decision making model is proposed as an evaluation tool, where the expert's comparison judgments are translated into fuzzy numbers.(More)

Disaster-induced damage and disruption to lifeline systems cause a variety of impacts, ranging from direct effects, such as physical damage and service supply interruption, to indirect impacts, such as forced relocation of community residents, threats to ongoing social and economic activity, and delays in the disaster recovery process. Recently, lifeline(More)
Ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs) relate ground-motion intensity measures to variables describing earthquake source, path, and site effects. We select from many available GMPEs those models recommended for use in seismic hazard assessments in the Global Earthquake Model. We present a GMPE selection procedure that evaluates multi-dimensional ground(More)
