Prototype System for Managing Enterprise Rail Transport Risk for Hazmat

This project will result in the development of a functional prototype tool that enables railroad decision makers and stakeholders to include the innovative concepts of safety risk accumulation and amplification resulting from multiple hazmat shipment movements throughout their operational networks. Using these novel concepts, this prototype will allow quantification of safety risks, not just for specific commodities or for a given origin-destination grouping (i.e., routes), but will help develop quantitative measures of network-level, all-hazmat safety risk.
