    • Assessment of hazardous material risks for rail yard safety 

      Glickman, T. S.; Erkut, E. (Elsevier, 2007)
      This paper illustrates the application of quantitative risk assessment in a rail yard where tank cars of hazardous materials are received and stored. The assessment was conducted in response to community concerns about ...
    • The cost and risk impacts of rerouting railroad shipments of hazardous materials 

      Glickman, T. S.; Erkut, E.; Zschocke, M. S. (Elsevier, 2007)
      Rail shipments of hazardous materials expose the population near the routes to the possibility of an accident resulting in a spill. Rail routes are determined by economic concerns such as route length and the revenue ...
    • Designing a road network for hazardous materials shipments 

      Erkut, E.; Alp, O. (Elsevier, 2007)
      We consider the problem of designating hazardous materials routes in and through a major population center. Initially, we restrict our attention to a minimally connected network (a tree) where we can predict accurately the ...
    • Designing emergency response networks for hazardous materials transportation 

      Berman O.; Verter V.; Kara, B.Y. (2007)
      Undesirable consequences of dangerous goods incidents can be mitigated by quick arrival of specialized response teams at the accident site. We present a novel methodology to determine the optimal design of a specialized ...
    • A GIS ‐ based framework for hazardous materials transport risk assessment 

      Verter, V.; Kara, B. Y. (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, 2001)
      This article presents a methodology for assessment of the hazardous materials transport risk in a multicommodity, multiple origin – destination setting. The proposed risk assessment methodology was integrated with a ...
    • Integrated routing and scheduling of hazmat trucks with stops en route 

      Erkut, E.; Alp, O. (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2007)
      We consider an integrated routing and scheduling problem in hazardous materials transportation where accident rates, population exposure, and link durations on the network vary with time of day. We minimize risk (accident ...
    • A path-based approach for hazmat transport network design 

      Verter V.; Kara, B. Y. (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (I N F O R M S), 2008)
      The people living and working around the roads used for hazardous material (hazmat) shipments face the risk of suffering undesirable consequences of an accident. The main responsibility to mitigate the hazmat transport ...
    • Solving the hazmat transport network design problem 

      Erkut, E.; Gzara, F. (Pergamon Press, 2008)
      In this paper, we consider the problem of network design for hazardous material transportation where the government designates a network, and the carriers choose the routes on the network. We model the problem as a bilevel ...
