Abstract:

This report examines the vulnerability of the transportation system in Office of Business Economics Areas 132, 133, 138, and 139 to the effects of a hypothetical nuclear attack. The transportation system is defined and described in terms of routes, modes of transport, and the quantities and types of commodities transported. An index of vulnerability is defined by criticalities, by node and by mode and the criticalities for the transportation system are calculated. A computerized transportation model simulates the flow of goods between nodes to determine whether or not critical commodities can reach their destinations in the event of a nuclear attack which has destroyed parts of the transportation system.
