  • Evaluation Emergency Transport Performances in Response for Hazardous Materials Road Transportation Accident Based on SPN: A Case of Jiangsu

    Hazardous materials road transportation accidents often cause serious deaths and injuries and huge property losses. It is essential to improve the capabilities in response for hazardous materials road transportation accidents. Governments in China began to establish Emergency Response System (ERS) to deal with various kinds of accidents. Emergency Transport Response System (ETRS) is subsystem of ERS to provide transportation support to reduce further damage caused by the accidents. A method to evaluate ETRS performances based on stochastic Petri net (SPN) and Markov Chain (MC) to model and analyze the main procedure of ETRS was proposed. Firstly, the operational characteristics of ETRS were identified, and then the model of ETRS were designed and simulated by using of SPN. In addition, through isomorphic MC of the SPN model, the performance of ETRS was analyzed. Finally, a real case was given to illustrate the feasibility of the proposed method.

  • A multi-objective model for the hazardous materials transportation problem based on lane reservation

    This paper presents an application of the lane reservation strategy in the hazardous materials transportation. Once an accident of hazardous materials transportation happens, its effect is significant. Lane reservation can reduce the hazardous materials transportation risk enormously; however, it will also impact on the normal traffic. The proposed problem is to choose lanes to be reserved on the network and select the path for each hazardous materials shipment among the reserved lanes in order to make a trade-off between the impact on the normal traffic and the total risk of the hazardous materials transportation. We first develop a multi-objective integer linear programming model for the problem with multiple types of hazardous materials and multiple origin-destination pairs. Then we adopt the ε-constraint method to solve the multi-objective model. The performance of the method is evaluated on a large set of randomly generated instances. Computational results show that the ε-constraint method can not only solve the proposed problems within reasonable time but also generate candidate solutions that can shape an efficient Pareto front for the multi-objective optimization problem.

  • An approach for road, railway, pipeline routing problem in hazardous materials transportation using multiple criteria

    Hazardous materials transportation is risky and an accident at any point of route can lead to severe consequences including fatalities, injuries, and environmental degradation. Routing hazardous materials is one of the main strategies to reduce the risk of hazardous materials transportation. This paper proposes an optimization cost-risk model in hazardous material routing problem and compares route on road, railway and pipeline transportation network. The cost is determined based on distance characteristic of road, railway and pipeline industry and the risk is assessed considering the potential impacts of hazardous materials transportation on the population, environment, and landmarks. The proposed method uses route distance, impact area, impact population, river, lake, and airport that are located in impact area as criterion to find optimal routes. The proposed method is applied to crude oil transportation in road, railway, and pipeline network in U.S. and Canada to demonstrate its applicability. The results show considering route distance, impact area, impact population, and length of river near the route criteria, the route on pipeline network, the route on rail network, the route on pipeline network, and the route on road network is optimal.

  • A new multi-objective model of location-allocation in emergency response network design for hazardous materials transportation

    Hazardous materials incidents during transportation will lead to undesirable consequences for people and environment. An emergency response network is designing for offer quick arrival of specialized response teams at the accident site. The emergency response center location-routing problem is aim to decide where to open emergency response centers and maximize the ability to respond to such incidents in a region. To be more comprehensive and practical, based on the known maximal arc-covering model, adding time and cost to the objectives, a new multi-objective 0-1 integer linear programming model was proposed for the location-allocation problem in emergency response network design. The solving algorithm was designed by adopting multi-objective linear programming method. Finally, a computational example was experimented and analyzed to demonstrate the practical feasibilities of the model and algorithm.

  • A risk-cost minimization model for catastrophe averse shipment of hazardous materials

    This article provides a quantitative method for estimating mixed routing strategies for catastrophe averse shipment of hazardous materials (hazmats), taking into account of both transportation cost and risk. The mixed routing problem is first formulate as a maximin problem and then is reduced to a single-level convex programming problem (CP). This CP reduction enables us to develop an efficient solution algorithm applicable to real-world large-scale networks.

  • Application of Fuzzy Assessment Method to Emergency Response Capability in Hazardous Materials Transportation

    In recent years, with the dramatic increase in the volume of hazardous materials and frequency of accidents in China, it has become an urgent priority to improve emergency response capacity and to research methods of assessment for emergency response capacity. Based on the characteristics of sudden accidents involving hazardous materials and the mechanisms of emergency management as well as the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), this paper presents an emergency response capacity index system which selects three stages and eleven response capabilities that are relevant to establishing systems of evaluation of emergency response capacity as research subjects and develops a theoretical model for assessment of emergency response capability in hazardous materials transportation in China. In this model, a fuzzy mathematics method of evaluation was used for computing and describing the subjects, thereby ordering the importance of various emergency response capability factors. Utilizing the application of this assessment measure, an example of an enterprise has been evaluated. Comparison of the comprehensive assessment result of emergency response capabilities with the computed scores reveals both the advantages and disadvantages of the enterprise concerning emergency response capability objectively and is helpful to rebuild and enhance these weak emergency response capabilities. .
