RAIN : Risk analysis of infrastructure networks in response to extreme weather

Description:

RAIN aims quantifying the complex interactions between weather events and land based infrastructure systems. The output of RAIN helps decision making in the long term, securing new robust infrastructure development and protection of existing infrastructure against climate change and increasingly more unpredictable weather patterns. Transport, energy and telecommunications infrastructure are considered and risk mitigation strategies developed. This is achieved through developing an operational analysis framework which considers the impact of individual hazards on specific infrastructure systems and the coupled interdependencies of critical infrastructure through robust risk and uncertainty modelling.
