A methodological approach to analyze vulnerability of interdependent infrastructures

Min Ouyang, Liu Hong, Zi-Jun Mao, Ming-Hui Yu, Fei Qi

The paper introduces a methodological approach to analyze the vulnerability of interdependent infrastructures. In the paper two types of vulnerability are considered:

  • structural vulnerability and
  • functional vulnerability.

Types of interrelationship between infrastructure systems (according to Network flow approach) are considered:

  • input dependence,
  • mutual dependence,
  • shared dependence,
  • exclusive dependence,
  • co-located dependence.

In this paper electrical and gas pipeline networks are mainly discussed and their co-located and mutual dependencies are considered. For the vulnerability analysis artificial infrastructure topologies were generated.
