Flexibility: An Indicator of Recovery Capability in Intermodal Freight Transport

Project 15

This research effort proposed a new index for assessing vulnerability of the freight transport network from the perspective of recovery operations. Such indices will measure the ability of the network to adapt to changing circumstances (such as a disaster) and return to its normal state of operation post-disaster. A methodological framework and specific computational steps for computing this measure was developed.
