Service Implications of Managing Infrastructure Distribution Systems in Crises

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

The service implications of managing infrastructure distribution systems in crises are discussed. The long distances traveled by these distribution systems not only increases their costs but also make them more vulnerable. The advantages and disadvantages of locating distribution systems underground are also discussed.
