Abstract

In this paper, an optimisation model for recovery planning of road networks is presented in which both social and economic resilience is aimed to be achieved. The model is formulated as a bi-level multi-objective discrete network design problem which forms a non-convex mixed integer non-linear problem. Solved by a Branch and Bound method, the solution algorithm employs an outer approximation method to estimate the lower bound of each node in the Branch and Bound search tree. The solution algorithm exploits a unique approach for lower-bound computation dealing with a disrupted multi-class network that may not be able to satisfy the demand between all OD pairs due to damaged links. The model i..
