Journal Papers

  • Aman Karamlou, Paolo Bocchini. From component damage to system-level probabilistic restoration functions for a damaged bridge. Journal of Infrastructure Systems, 2017, 23(3), 04016042, DOI: 10.1061/(ASCE)IS.1943-555X.0000342.
    This paper proposes a simulation-based technique to compute the probabilistic characteristics of the functionality for a damaged bridge at component-level. Uncertainties in restoration durations and decision process are considered in the simulation analysis. The proposed methodology is applied to a multispan simply supported (MSSS) steel girder bridge after an earthquake.

  • Aman Karamlou, Paolo Bocchini. Sequencing algorithm with multiple-input genetic operators: application to disaster resilience. Engineering Structures, 2016, 117(C), 591 - 602.
    This paper presents a novel evolutionary optimization methodology called "Algorithm with Multiple-Input Genetic Operators” (AMIGO) for optimal resilience restoration scheduling independent tasks considering resource and time constraints.

  • Ying Zhang, Lawrence V. Snyder, Ted K. Ralphs, Zhaojie Xue. The competitive facility location problem under disruption risks. Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review, 2016, 93, 453-473.
    This paper investigates a facility location problem incorporating service competition and disruption risks. A new binary bilevel linear programming (BBLP) model is developed to determine the locations for the leader to maximize her market share, under the strongest possible response by the follower.

  • Ying Zhang, Lawrence V. Snyder, Mingyao Qi, Lixin Miao. A heterogeneous reliable location model with risk pooling under supply disruptions. Transportation Research Part B Methodological, 2016, 83, 151-178.
    This paper investigates a facility location model that considers the disruptions of facilities and the cost savings from the inventory risk-pooling effect and economies of scale.

    This conference paper expands the simulation-based technique (Karamlou and Bocchini 2017) to compute the probabilistic characteristics of the functionality for a damaged substation and a group of damaged bridge structures at component-level.

  • Sicong Kuang, Brian Davison. Class-specific Word Embedding through Linear Compositionality, International Workshop on Mining Actionable Insights from Social Networks (MAISoN'17) , February 6-10, 2017, Cambridge, UK .
    This conference paper applies the linear compossitionality to analyze class-specific word embedding problems.

  • Francesco Rigato, Mariano Angelo Zanini, Paolo Bocchini. Time-series analysis for the calibration of causative models of spatially distributed infrastructure interdependencies in post-disaster recovery, 1st International Workshop on Resilience at Torino, Italy, September 20-22, 2016.
    This conference paper investigates the functionality interdependencies between power, transporation, and communication systems through time-series analysis of simulated data for post-disaster recovery.
