Safety and availability of road infrastructure during extreme natural and man-made events
Extreme natural and man-made events can harm the road infrastructure facilities with substantial economic damages. The research presented in this paper focuses on the quantification of the availability and safety of road infrastructure during the occurrence of extreme events. It presents the first results of the implementation of Resilience Engineering to road infrastructure. This work is carried out within the framework of the BMVI Network of Experts of the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure as part of the research 'Quantification and prognosis of the availability and safety of road infrastructure in extreme events' which is a component of the topic 'Increasing the reliability of transport infrastructures' lead by the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt).
