REDARS 2 Methodology and Software for Seismic Risk Analysis of Highway Systems

The Risk of Earthquake Damage for Roadway Systems (REDARS) 2 report provides the basic framework and a demonstration application of the Seismic Risk Analysis (SRA) methodology and its modules. It also describes results from six years of work to update the methodology, program this methodology into a public-domain software package, and test and document this software. The main modules of the REDARS 2 SRA methodology include hazards, components, system and economic. The northern Los Angeles, California highway system is used as a demonstration application of the SRA methodology. Eleven appendices are provided in PDF on the included CD-ROM. References, tables and many figures supplement the text as well.
