Article
Increasing wildfire risks have significantly disrupted supply chain systems in the United States, which accounts for a large portion of wildfire-induced economic losses and affects the regional and national economies. While it is important to understand wildfire effects on supply chains in meeting customer needs and achieving regional economic stab...

Insurance against disaster plays a critical role in community resilience by providing policyholders with reliable and timely payments for repairing or reconstructing damaged houses. By allowing homeowners to transfer risk and avoid excessive financial burdens, insurance (this study specifically looked at homeowners insurance) can encourage homeowne...
Article
This paper proposes a simulation framework that quantitatively assesses the direct and indirect effects of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) on a supply chain system by varying the levels of CAV market penetration and driverless truck adoption. To quantify CAV effects on transportation network, this paper first collects secondary data and ad...
Article
Full-text available
Wildfires have become increasing threats to residents, built environments, and ecosystems in the USA. Individual responsibility plays an important role in reducing structure-level ignitability, and in turn, overall community vulnerability. When wildfire cannot be completely prevented through risk reduction efforts, homeowners insurance can serve as...
Article
Full-text available
Bridges in a road network play a significant role in supporting the flows of people, goods, and freights during an earthquake event and are expected to maintain their functionality following the event. Thus, measuring the capability of a bridge to limit the magnitude of the instantaneous impact of an earthquake event on its capacity is critical for...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Wildfire has become an increasing threat to humans, built environment, and ecosystems in the United States. Such increases in wildfire risk are attributable to several factors, including the increased frequency, intensity and duration of wildfires induced by climate change, rapid population growth at the wildland-urban interface, etc. To reduce wil...
Article
Full-text available
Bridges are one of the most critical but vulnerable components in a transportation network during an earthquake event. Due to structural damage, the post-earthquake safety of bridges can be reduced significantly, and in order to maintain their safety, the allowable traffic flows of bridges are often controlled or regulated. Since the post-earthquak...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Resilience analysis has been concerning the interest of many researchers since it can estimate the remaining functionality performance of a system after a disruption. In general, the resilience measure is determined using four main properties including robustness, redundancy, rapidity, and resourcefulness. Nevertheless, there is no unified metric t...
Article
Full-text available
The FEMA P-58 performance-based earthquake engineering methodology was used to assess the economic losses associated with earthquake damage to nonstructural components of two prototype buildings with post-tensioned cross-laminated timber rocking walls. A suite of 22 far-field ground motions were used for nonlinear time history (NLTH) analysis. Trun...
Article
Full-text available
Models that simulate postearthquake functional loss and restoration of water distribution systems support the development and implementation of more informed resilience-enhancing strategies. This study uses pipe damage, repair data, and a discrete-event simulation (DES) model to hindcast the water system damage and functional loss and restoration,...
Article
Full-text available
Abstract: As a matter of fact, structural drift is a random variable that is associated with several bases of the uncertainties related to the loading excitation and structural resistance. Hence, it seems essential to utilize the probabilistic philosophy to provide a design criterion of control the structural drift. The current study was conducted...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Scoliosis is a spine abnormal deviation, which is an idiopathic disorder among children and adolescents. As a matter of the fact, distribution of loads on the patient's spine and load-carrying capacity of the vertebral column are both random variables. Therefore, the probabilistic approach may consider as a sophisticated method to deal...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter seeks to determine the optimal structural design parameter values for a 6-story controlled rocking steel braced frame (CRSBF) building that minimizes the upfront (initial construction) and earthquake-induced economic and environmental impacts. The dead load on the rocking frame, initial post-tensioning force, fuse strength and frame as...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Catastrophe risk insurance is an important risk management tool that reduces excessive financial burdens of homeowners following a disaster and expedites the recovery of disaster-impacted buildings and the community that they support. This paper proposes a quantitative framework for assessing the effects of catastrophe risk insurance on community r...
Article
Civil infrastructure systems and communities are continually subjected to changes in environmental and urban settings, evolving expectations and preferences of the public, tightening budgets, and unpredictable political circumstances over their service lives. Conventional decision methods, which determine optimal strategies based on stationary risk...
Conference Paper
A water distribution system is challenged by increasing risks and the associated uncertainties caused by dynamic changes in social, economic, urban, and environmental conditions during its service life. The stationary assumption of risks made in customary seismic modeling of water systems may not be appropriate for dealing with such evolving risks...
Article
Adaptive decision-making (ADM) is a structured process of learning, improving understanding, and ultimately adapting management decisions in a systematic and efficient way, aimed at reducing uncertainties over the course of the management timeframe. This approach holds a great potential for dealing with the challenges faced by civil infrastructure...
Article
Public awareness of civil infrastructure performance has increased considerably in recent years as a result of repeated natural disasters. Risks from natural hazards may increase dramatically in the future, given current patterns of urbanization and population growth in hazard-prone areas. Risk assessments for infrastructure with expected service p...
Chapter
Civil infrastructure facilities play a central role in the well-being of modern society. Lifecycle engineering of such facilities requires consideration of uncertainties in natural hazard occurrence and intensity, and the response of buildings, bridges, transportation networks and lifelines to these hazards. The service periods for certain critical...
Article
Life-cycle performance, safety, reliability and risk are emergent issues for civil infrastructure systems exposed to recurring natural and man-made disasters. In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of socio-economic sustainability in research and practice in the field of civil infrastructure. Sustainable engineering s...
Article
Civil infrastructure facilities play a central role in the economic, social and political health of modern society. Such facilities are susceptible to ageing, which is stochastic in nature and makes their reliabilities time dependent. Life-cycle engineering analysis and risk-informed decision tools have advanced in recent years for managing public...
Thesis
Civil infrastructure facilities play a central role in the economic, social and political health of modern society and their safety, integrity and functionality must be maintained at manageable cost over their service lives through design and periodic maintenance. Hurricanes and tropical cyclones, tornadoes, earthquakes and floods are paramount amo...

Project
This project proposes a multi-level resilience-based transportation asset management framework using Bayesian network to (a) measure transportation network resilience at multiple management levels, (b) determine the optimal combination of inspection/monitoring techniques, and (c) provide the optimal allocation of budgets to multiple pre- and post-disaster resilience-enhancing strategies.
