Lecture 2: Modelling infrastructure assets

This lecture block gives an introduction to infrastructure flow and failure modelling frameworks. First, we look at the spatial aspects of infrastructure service provision, with a short introduction to infrastructure specific spatial data. Second, we cover fundamentals of spatial mapping and flow simulation modelling of transport systems and show the disruption metrics created from such models. Third, we explain the water infrastructure network and the disruptions that affect water supplies, from asset-related failures to source-related failures. Finally, we explain spatial and simulation modelling of flows and impacts of climate hazards on energy systems. Get Started
