Enhanced Network Models for Multimodal Resiliency

This project will develop next-generation multimodal network resilience models. The research team will examine the performance of networked transportation systems in disrupted conditions using field data, generate mathematical models to describe system performance and user behavior, and develop mitigation strategies based on this model. This project is distinguished from previous efforts in this space by explicitly considering multiple travel modes. The team specifically will consider road transport, freight waterways, and port terminals as the transportation systems in their scope. The primary disruption the team will consider is a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, which can disrupt both transportation supply (closing roads, damaging port or waterway infrastructure) and demand (evacuation, closed businesses).
