Abstract:Resilience of engineering systems is related to their ability of absorbing both gradual and abrupt changes under exposure conditions and rapidly recover from disruptions. In this thesis, we develop a general stochastic formulation to model the recovery process and quantify system's resilience. In particular, we develop models for time-dependent capacity of a system and the imposed demand, under joint effects of recovery and shock deterioration processes. Using the developed models, a recovery curve is formulated in terms of system's reliability, functionality and work progress. Furthermore, we propose a novel approach for resilience analysis by defining measures to capture characteristics of recovery curves. The proposed approach makes a distinction in resilience of systems with different recovery patterns. A numerical example is provided to illustrate the application of the model.
