Routing decisions in an earthquake relief network
In this paper, a mathematical model is developed in order to configure part of the earthquake relief network in Istanbul, Turkey. The aim of the mathematical model is to help decision makers decide on the routing of different types of relief aids (food, drug, and tent) from the local airport to the main distribution centers; from the main distribution centers to sub-distribution centers and from these centers to the tent areas and meeting points of people in need, while minimizing the total cost of transportation and taking into consideration capacity restrictions, and demand of end points. The mathematical model is implemented in a pilot area in Istanbul, Atasehir municipality, and solved optimally with LINGO 7.0 solver. The related data is obtained from Atasehir municipality, Search & Rescue Association (AKUT), and Disaster Coordination Center (AKOM).
