Disasters are catastrophic events that can severely affect the life conditions of entire communities. Disaster‐related issues are usually dealt with according to the Disaster Operations Management framework, which is composed of four phases: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. This work focuses on two crucial operations belonging to t...

Assessing critical infrastructure vulnerabilities is paramount to arrange efficient plans for their protection. Critical infrastructures are network-based systems hence, they are composed of nodes and edges. The literature shows that node criticality, which is the focus of this paper, can be addressed from different metric-based perspectives (e.g.,...
Article
Full-text available
Urban rail transit systems are highly prone to disruptions of various nature (e.g., accidental, environmental, man-made). Railway networks are deemed as critical infrastructures given that a service interruption can prompt adverse consequences on entire communities and lead to potential far-reaching effects. Hence, the identification of optimal str...
Article
Shelter opening and evacuation of vulnerable populations are operations crucial to disaster response, which is one of the four phases of Disaster Operations Management (DOM). Optimisation has tried to capture some of the different issues related to shelter location and evacuation routing: several models have been developed over the years. However,...
Chapter
Full-text available
Urban rail transit systems are highly vulnerable to disruptions, including accidental failures, natural disasters and terrorist attacks. Due to the crucial role that railway infrastructures play in economic development, productivity and social well-being of communities, evaluating their vulnerability and identifying their most critical components i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Over the years, Critical Infrastructures (CI) have revealed themselves to be extremely disaster-prone, be the disasters nature-based or man-made. This paper focuses on a specific category of CI: Critical Information Infrastructures (CII), which are commonly deemed to include communication and information networks. The majority of all the other CI (...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Critical infrastructures are network-based systems which are prone to various types of threats (e.g., terroristic or cyber-attacks). Therefore, it is paramount to devise modelling frameworks to assess their ability to withstand external disruptions and to develop protection strategies aimed at improving their robustness and security. In this paper,...
Conference Paper
Emergency planning operations are one of the key aspects of Disaster Operations Management (DOM) [1]. This work presents a scenario-based location-allocation-routing model to optimize evacuation planning decisions, including where to establish shelter sites and which routes to arrange to reach them, across different network disruption scenarios. Th...
Article
Full-text available
The problem of designing a wired or a wireless sensor network to cover, monitor and/or control a region of interest has been widely treated in literature. This problem is referred to in literature as the sensor placement problem (SPP) and in the most general case it consists in determining the number and the location of one or more kind of sensors...
Article
Full-text available
Intelligent transportation systems are of great importance in urban traffic management. In this context variable message signs (VMS) play a major role in providing drivers with useful information during their trips. In this paper we consider the problem of finding the optimal location of a set of portable VMS on an urban network where flow patterns...
