These two problems&nbsp;are defined based on the concepts of suitable remaining trip-hours, link importance, and klink&nbsp;connectedness of node-destinations in the network. The objective of problem (AP) is to&nbsp;upgrade the important links so as to maximize a measure of the performance of the network.&nbsp;This is a before-accident treatment of the network. The objective of problem (MP) is to&nbsp;mitigate the accident effects in the network so as to maximize a measure of network&nbsp;connectedness. This is an after-accident treatment of the network, which is done by equipping<br>auxiliary links in the network to join the available set of links, in order to make important 1-link connected node-destination pairs, k-link connected (k ≥ 2) . Two algorithms have been&nbsp;proposed to solve these two problems. The reasonability of the solution results has been&nbsp;shown by applying these two algorithms on a small-sized (6 nodes, 10 links) example&nbsp;network. The feasibility of the application of these algorithms on larger networks has been&nbsp;investigated by applying them on the network of Sioux Falls (24 nodes and 76 links).</p>}, number={3}, journal={European Journal of Transport and Infrastructure Research}, author={Poorzahedy, Hossain and Shetab Bushehri, Sayed Nader}, year={2003}, month={Aug.} }
