An overview of transport system resilience
Time: Tue 2020-10-20 08.30 - 09.30
Lecturer: Erik Jenelius
This presentation will provide an overview of recent research on resilience of transport systems. Definitions of resilience are formulated and discussed together with related concepts such as robustness, redundancy and risk. Shocks to the transport system are classified as internal or external, natural or human-made, intentional or unintentional, and targeting supply or demand. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to understand and manage the long-term effects of demand drops.
Erik Jenelius is Associate Professor Public Transport Systems and head of the Division for Transport Planning at KTH.
