Two new resilience publications 2017!

Two new resilience publications! Well, here at the Analytics Lab @ OU  2017 started off nicely with two new articles published in the area of community resilience. We are also very excited about finally being able to share the virtual community we created named “Centerville” as a part of the Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience… Read More »

Centerville Virtual Community Testbed

Centerville Special Edition in Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure Enhancing community resilience in the future will require new interdisciplinary systems-based approaches that depend on many disciplines, including engineering, social and economic, and information sciences. The National Institute of Standards and Technology awarded the Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience Planning to Colorado State University and nine other… Read More »

Flow-Based Vulnerability Measures for Network Component Importance: Experimentation with Preparedness Planning

A new resilience paper “Flow-Based Vulnerability Measures for Network Component Importance: Experimentation with Preparedness Planning” authored by Charles Nicholson, Kash Barker, and Jose Ramirez-Marquez and has been accepted for publication in Reliability Engineering & System Safety.   This work develops and compares several flow-based vulnerability me asures to prioritize important network edges for the implementation… Read More »

NSF funded project, “Resilience Analytics: A Data-Driven Approach for Enhanced Interdependent Network Resilience”

Infrastructure must outsmart disruptions to continue delivery of essential goods and services. To this end, NSF-funded 12 CRISP projects in FY 2015 including $2.2 million to support Resilience Analytics: A Data-Driven Approach for Enhanced Interdependent Network Resilience. Kash Barker of the University of Oklahoma (OU) will lead the project, in partnership with Charles Nicholson of OU, James… Read More »
