Reliability-Based Traffic Safety Risk Assessment of Traffic System in Hazardous Driving Conditions to Promote Community Resilience

Traffic crash risks considerably increase on bridges and connecting roadways under various hazardous driving conditions before and following some natural hazards, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and snowstorms. During different phases of natural hazards, appropriate preparation, response and recovery efforts to improve the community resilience all depend on safe and efficient transportation even under hazardous driving conditions. This project will develop a basic framework to model traffic safety risk functions based on reliability theory by considering various adverse driving conditions, potential vehicle safety risks and associated uncertainties.
