Book description

Power and communications networks are uniquely important in times of disaster. Drawing on twenty years of first-hand experience in critical infrastructure disaster forensics, this book will provide you with an unrivalled understanding of how and why power and communication networks fail. Discover key concepts in network theory, reliability, and resilience, and see how they apply to critical infrastructure modelling. Explore real-world case-studies of power grid and information and communication network (ICN) performance and recovery during earthquakes, wildfires, tsunamis, and other natural disasters; as well as man-made disasters. Understand the fundamentals of disaster forensics, learn how to apply these principles to your own field investigations, and identify practical, relevant strategies, technologies and tools for improving power and ICN resilience. With over 350 disaster-site photographs of real-world power and ICN equipment, this is the ideal introduction to resilience engineering for professional engineers and academic researchers working in power and ICN system resilience.
