Abstract : The report constitutes a review and appraisal of earlier research reports produced during the past decade, the purpose being to develop means of determining the vulnerability of the nation's transportation systems and to provide meaningful estimates of the capability of the surviving systems to meet the needs of the postattack society and economy. An extensive literature search discloses no significant improvements in vulnerability assessment methodology, nor in essential data availability since the manual technique employed in the earlier SRI studies. An annotated bibliography of the more important documents (about 50 items) is included. A summary of data requirements and likely sources is compiled for each mode and the framework for the design of a generalized analytical model is presented. (Author)
