Abstract

To build a general model for the propagation of destructive events during disasters, we consider a networked system. The model involves network nodes as single objects and delayed interactions along directed links. In this work, a disaster is understood as a sequence of dynamic destructive events which cause nonreversible changes, spreading in cascade-like manner. We define a global state of the system and suppose that the Markovian property holds. Hence, we can describe any object s first affect using the phase type distribution. This model can be used to improve disaster awareness and anticipated disaster response management.
