The managerial problem can be to determine the best routing plan for railcars, with hazmat and regular freight, and the number of trains of each type required to meet the given set of demand. Railroad Transportation of Hazardous Materials 35 Greensboro Memphis Nashville-Davidson Durham Knoxville Charlotte Greenville Anniston Sumter Atlanta South Augusta Goose Creek Jackson Montgomery Orange Grove Jacksonville Gainesville Ojus Fig. 10 Freight railroad network (Source: Verma 2009) Both (Verma 2009) and (Verma et al.

It should be evident from the risk objective in (25) that transport risk is linear in the number of hazmat railcars, and that all hazmat possess similar chemical properties. For example, aggregate transport risk from five hazmat railcars is exactly 5-times that from a single hazmat railcar. Although we invite the reader to consult (Verma 2009) for additional details, we note that the indicated “linearity” was not observed when population exposure was used as the measure for transport risk in (Verma et al.

Note that, in contrast with the fixed bandwidth approach, the radius of each impact area in Fig. 6 varies with the release rate. The authors next extended the basic GPM to incorporate multiple release-sources as follows. Assume that the 11-railcar train in Fig. 7 is travelling east, and that F and L denote the first and last hazmat railcar, respectively. M is the point with equal amount of hazmat on both sides, which is referred to as the hazmat-median of the train. For trains with an even number of hazmat railcars, M is midpoint of the two hazmat railcars at the center of hazardous cargo.
