Large-scale disasters cause enormous damage to people living at the aff ected areas. Providing relief quickly to the aff ected is a critical issue in recovering the eff ects of a disaster. Predisaster planning has an important role on reducing the arrival time of relief items to the a ffected areas and effi ciently allocating the them. In this study, an MIP model is proposed in order to pre-position warehouses throughout an a ffected area and determine the amount of relief items to be held in those warehouses. Time between the strike of a disaster and arrival of relief items at the a ffected areas is aimed to be minimized. In addition, using probabilistic constraints, the model ensures that relief items arrive at affected areas within a certain time window with a certain reliability. Considering instable fault lines on which Istanbul is located, the proposed model is applied to Istanbul case for pre-positioning warehouses a priori to the possible expected large-scale earthquake.

Pre-Positioning Disaster Response Facilities and Relief Items
RENKLİ, Cigdem; Duran, Serhan (2015-07-04)
Large-scale disasters cause enormous damage to people living in the affected areas. Providing relief quickly to the affected is a critical issue in recovering the effects of a disaster. Pre-disaster planning has an important role on reducing the arrival time of relief items to the affected areas and efficiently allocating them. In this study, a mixed integer programming model is proposed in order to pre-position warehouses throughout a potential affected area and determine the amount of relief items to be h...
Analysis of local actors in disaster management through organizational aspect in Turkey
Çelik, Aylin; Ersoy, Melih; Duyguluer, Mehmet Feridun; Department of Earthquake Studies (2015)
The rapid increase in world population, unplanned urbanization and the density in metropolitan regions cause disaster losses to increase. Thus, the structure, extent and organization scheme of disaster management became focal point and should be considered in details along with “disaster risk mitigation” processes, which have changed and developed over last 25 years. The governance concept arisen under the influence of neo liberal policies constitutes one of the trivets of new perception with its participat...
Pre-positioning of relief items under road/facility vulnerability with concurrent restoration and relief transportation
Aslan, Ece; Çelik, Melih (2019-08-03)
Planning for response to sudden-onset disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, or floods needs to take into account the inherent uncertainties regarding the disaster and its impacts on the affected people as well as the logistics network. This article focuses on the design of a multi-echelon humanitarian response network, where the pre-disaster decisions of warehouse location and item pre-positioning are subject to uncertainties in relief item demand and vulnerability of roads and facilities following the...
Mechanism, Modeling and Forecasting of Landslide Displacements(FOLADIS)
Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan(2013-1-3)
Landslides cause significant damage and loss of life throughout the world. There is an increase in landslide activity as a result of continued deforestation, increased construction in landslide-prone areas, and increased regional precipitation by changing climate patterns, which is a primary trigger for landslides. One of the four priorities areas in FP7 have been identified as triggering factors and forecasting, and mitigation strategies for natural hazards. The overall goal of this research is to reduce d...
Facility location and item pre-positioning for humanitarian relief systems under uncertain demand and road-facility vulnerabilities
Aslan, Ece; Çelik, Melih; Department of Industrial Engineering (2016)
Disasters may have devastating effect on human life as well as economy, and Turkey is a disaster prone country, especially to earthquakes. This study aims to propose a multi-echelon humanitarian logistics network design by incorporation of demand uncertainty and road-facility vulnerabilities with an application to a possible earthquake scenario in Istanbul region of Turkey. In frame of the study, a two stage stochastic programming model is formulated. In the first stage, warehouse and distribution center lo...
