  • Development of a Decision-Support Tool for Bridge Infrastructure Adaptation in Response to Climate-Induced Flood Risk | Vanderbilt Center for Transportation and Operational Resiliency (VECTOR) | Vanderbilt University
    Environmental Management Studies VCEMS and the Vanderbilt Center for Transportation Research VECTOR have repurposed a commonly available tool to assist in this daunting and important task Utilizing the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA HAZUS MH software as a cornerstone the researchers developed a methodology that may be employed by communities to triage the bridges in their jurisdiction for scour risk The methodology validated against data gathered from the devastating floods that struck Davidson County in 2010 provides a tool that can be used by communities both large and small to minimize impact to their transportation lifelines from precipitation and flooding changes brought about by our changing climate This work is the result of dissertation research conducted by James C Banks under the direction of Mark Abkowitz and Janey Camp More information can be found from the dissertation itself contacting Abkowitz or Camp or from following journal articles 2014 J Banks J Camp M Abkowitz Scale and Resolution Considerations in the Application of HAZUS MH to Flood Risk Assessments ASCE Journal Natural Hazards Review October 2014 04014025 1 10 2014 J Banks J Camp M Abkowitz Adaptation Planning for Floods A Review of Available Tools Natural Hazards 70 2 1327 1337 User Guide Back Home Current Research Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Operations and Infrastructure A Leadership Summit Enterprise Risk Management Methods Enhancement and Mitigation Strategy Development Regional Traffic and Safety Information Dissemination Phase III Mining AIS Data for Improved Vessel Trip Analysis Capabilities Development of an Enterprise Risk Management ERM Evaluation Toolbox Impact Estimation of the Effects of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Infrastructure Development of a Decision Support Tool for Bridge Infrastructure Adaptation in Response to Climate Induced Flood Risk Completed Research Projects Recent News Hiba Baroud presented a poster at the Society for Risk

  • Development of an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Evaluation Toolbox | Vanderbilt Center for Transportation and Operational Resiliency (VECTOR) | Vanderbilt University
    researchers developed an ERM methodology that addresses the aforementioned process steps which was subsequently demonstrated in a pilot application involving a major freight transportation carrier This led to a follow on research activity designed to automate the methodology such that the ERM decision support tool could be accessed by a broader set of transportation stakeholders who could benefit from its availability The product of this effort is a web based application called RiskCatcher structured in a user friendly menu driven format with modules that mirror the previously described process steps It operates much in the same way as TurboTax in that users select relevant risk categories following which they are presented with selections within each category that are chosen to describe scenarios and corresponding scenario likelihoods and consequences RiskCatcher can be used to perform both quantitative and qualitative risk analyses Results are portrayed in graphic and tabular form and may be exported to other software applications The program also includes a library where relevant information can be sourced for use as default values to support various scenario evaluations RiskCatcher can be accessed through the following url http transp40 vuse vanderbilt edu riskcatcher This decision support tool offers the potential for organizations in the freight transportation industry and other sectors to implement enterprise risk management as a core business practice RiskCatcher can improve the organization s ability to identify priority risks and select appropriate management control strategies for mitigating those risks Ultimately this can enable an organization to operate with less vulnerability and greater resilience in dealing with the risks that threaten its well being Back Home Current Research Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Operations and Infrastructure A Leadership Summit Enterprise Risk Management Methods Enhancement and Mitigation Strategy Development Regional Traffic and Safety Information Dissemination Phase III

    level of performance prioritize where risk management actions are warranted and implement cost effective risk mitigation strategies that are practical and achievable Previously Vanderbilt developed an ERM protocol for identifying reasonably foreseeable risks and prioritizing among them This protocol was subsequently applied it in a pilot application involving a major freight transportation carrier In performing this work the foundation was laid from which to develop and field test a method for determining the cost effectiveness of various mitigation strategies directed at reducing priority risks Moreover the pilot test identified improvements that can be made to the ERM protocol based on observations and feedback received The objective of this task is to address these enhancement opportunities by completing the following steps Develop a method for evaluating the cost effectiveness of candidate strategies directed at mitigating priority risks identified using the ERM protocol Field test this method in a pilot application involving a major freight transportation carrier Modify the ERM protocol based on observations and feedback for the following process steps as appropriate 1 scenario development process 2 risk scoring method 3 risk estimation and analysis approach and 4 method for evaluating risk mitigation strategies Please contact Mark Abkowitz for more information on this project Back Home Current Research Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Operations and Infrastructure A Leadership Summit Enterprise Risk Management Methods Enhancement and Mitigation Strategy Development Regional Traffic and Safety Information Dissemination Phase III Mining AIS Data for Improved Vessel Trip Analysis Capabilities Development of an Enterprise Risk Management ERM Evaluation Toolbox Impact Estimation of the Effects of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Infrastructure Development of a Decision Support Tool for Bridge Infrastructure Adaptation in Response to Climate Induced Flood Risk Completed Research Projects Recent News Hiba Baroud presented a poster at the Society for

  • Impact Estimation of the Effects of Climate Change on Freight Transportation Infrastructure | Vanderbilt Center for Transportation and Operational Resiliency (VECTOR) | Vanderbilt University
    a continuation of the project including synthesis of the total costs of the May 2010 flood for comparison with damage assessment model outputs at various levels of user input Research Objectives The objective of this research is to develop a methodology that would build upon an existing damage assessment model such as HAZUS to provide a more comprehensive estimate of the impacts associated with damage to the freight transportation infrastructure due to a climate change induced event The methodology would be applied to the Nashville flood of May 2010 purported to be a 1 000 year event and for which the research team has access to considerable impact data Development of this methodology would address an important unmet need for the transportation community enabling a more realistic characterization of the impacts of extreme weather events prioritization of transportation infrastructure that is most threatened and assist in development and evaluation of potential adaptation strategies Key Research Activities The following tasks would be performed as part of this research 1 Run HAZUS or a comparable damage estimation model to simulate the impacts of the observed flood event as a baseline for comparison 2 Survey a representative sample of affected residents and businesses to determine the overall economic ecological and social impacts associated with the event including the impacts on their ability to use the transportation infrastructure to ship receive goods and services 3 Develop methodology to determine impacts associated with damage to freight transportation infrastructure using model outputs and data gained from surveys 4 Calibrate the selected impact estimation model based on a comparison of simulated and actual impacts 5 Apply calibrated model to forecast the freight transportation impacts of future event scenarios based on anticipated climate changes 6 Illustrate how this information can be used to identify freight transportation infrastructure that
