Application: ResilienT Design / Infrastructure Resilience
Infrastructure resilience is characterized by the infrastructure’s ability to continue to provide critical services efficiently following a disruptive event. An infrastructure’s resilience is determined by how it absorbs, adapts to and recovers from those disruptive events. Infrastructure resilience is crucial element of national and homeland security, so it is important to be able to analyze infrastructure resilience in a technically defensible and objective manner. Doing so requires assessing elements such as pre-disruption investments, post-disruption recovery, resilience costs, resource allocation, and various network elements can enhance overall resilience. Research efforts have demonstrated this type of resilience analysis can be achieved by integration of infrastructure modeling, mathematical theory, and network analysis. Furthermore, these techniques can be used to design resilience into new and existing infrastructure systems.
