Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to study the requirement for transportation models in civil preparedness analysis, investigate the topic of existing models best suited to fill these requirements, and describe any modifications necessary to make them compatible with the Defense Civil Preparedness Agencys National Nodal Network Systems Model. Data on the characteristics of transport movements, freight and passenger by both private and commercial modes, are presented and analyzed as background for evaluating the criticality of transport needs in a post-disaster emergency and in a subsequent recovery period. Recommendations are made for model development or modification of existing models to meet the priority needs of civil defense analysis. A recommendation is also made for establishing a central modeling capability for emergency transportation analysis within the Federal government. Author
