Abstract Transportation infrastructure plays an important role in supporting the national economy and social well-being. Extreme events have caused terrible physical damages to the transportation infrastructure, with long-term socioeconomic impacts. An increasing number of studies focus on the resilience analysis of transportation infrastructure to support planning and design, as well as efficient management. As a comprehensive review, this paper covers different metrics for resilience… 
Measuring Urban Infrastructure Resilience via Pressure-State-Response Framework in Four Chinese Municipalities
Urban infrastructure (UI), subject to ever-increasing stresses from artificial activities of human beings and natural disasters due to climate change, assumes a key role in modern cities for
Fragility of bridges exposed to multiple hazards and impact on transport network resilience
Transportation infrastructure is a pylon for the society and economy, enabling the services and transportation of goods and people, under normal and emergency circumstances. Bridges act as
Urban Infrastructure Resilience Assessment During Mega Sport Events Using a Multi-Criteria Approach
Critical infrastructures share the same space and mutual dependencies, and consequently contribute to city's overall resilience. However, each has different assessment methods and metrics, which
Transportation System Vulnerability Assessment considering Environmental Impact
Transportation system has a close bearing on the prosperity of society. However, transportation infrastructures are highly vulnerable to extreme events. Therefore, identifying the most critical
Simulation of transportation infrastructures resilience: a comprehensive review
Despite the increasing simulation methods used by the research of transportation infrastructure resilience in the past decade, a comprehensive review of these simulation methods is lacking. Thus,
Resilience in Infrastructure Systems: A Comprehensive Review
When encountering crisis events, systems, organizations, and people must react and handle these unpredictable events. Under these circumstances, important social functions and infrastructures must be
Hazards, Infrastructure Networks and Unspecific Resilience
The aim of this paper is to provide a framework to improve urban resilience independently of the nature of the disturbances. Recent disasters had a significant impact on critical infrastructures
Resilient cities critical infrastructure interdependence: a meta-research
ABSTRACT Given the unforeseen events that take continue to place worldwide, cities are experiencing rapid transformations. To maintain their basic functions, cities have to be resilient– possess the


Assessing resilience in a regional road-based transportation network
Resilience deals with the response of the system in the face of shock and its ability to continue to provide the expected service delivery levels. In the transportation infrastructure, system shocks
Measuring the performance of transportation infrastructure systems in disasters: a comprehensive review
This paper provides a comprehensive overview of the literature on transportation infrastructure system performance in disasters. Specifically, it reviews those articles appearing in refereed
A quantitative method for assessing resilience of interdependent infrastructures
A Sketch Level Method for Assessing Transportation Network Resiliency toNatural Disasters and Man-Made Events
Every day the dependence on transportation systems and facilities grows as local, regional, national, and international independence increases. Resilient transportation systems are needed to maintain
Resilience: An Indicator of Recovery Capability in Intermodal Freight Transport
A stochastic mixed-integer program is proposed for quantifying network resilience and identifying an optimal postevent course of action to take and a technique that accounts for dependencies in random link attributes based on concepts of Benders decomposition, column generation, and Monte Carlo simulation is proposed.
Transportation Network Resiliency: A Study of Self-Annealing
Transportation networks, as important lifelines linking communities and goods, are indispensable for the smooth functioning of society. These networks are, however, fragile and vulnerable to natural
Quantitatively Measuring Transportation Network Resilience under Earthquake Uncertainty and Risks
The focus of this model is on generalizing quantitative resilience measures of transportation network response to earthquake risks rather than specifying characteristics of the corridor selections that lead to patterns of the response of each specific road segment.
Practical Resilience Metrics for Planning, Design, and Decision Making
AbstractNatural disasters in 2011 alone resulted in $366 billion (2011 US$) in direct damages and 29,782 fatalities worldwide. Storms and floods accounted for up to 70% of the 302 natural disasters
