New paper on “Restoration models for quantifying flood resilience of bridges”

In order to assess and quantify the resilience of flood-critical bridges and subsequently deploy bridge resilience models aiming at building resilience into transport networks, it is essential to use reliable fragility, capacity restoration and traffic reinstatement metrics and models. 
In our recent paper “Restoration models for quantifying flood resilience of bridges” published in Engineering Structures, recovery models are presented, including restoration task prioritisation and scheduling, inter-task dependencies, idle times, durations and cost ratios for different damage levels, as well as the evolution of traffic capacity after floods.

The paper is authored by Dr Stergios Aristoteles Mitoulis, Dr Sotirios Argyroudis, Dr Marianna Loli & Dr Boulent Imam and is available here.
