Abstract 

This upload contains the data and scripts used for a research paper in preparation for publication. The paper presents a probabilistic resilience assessment framework where failure scenarios and network disruptions are generated using weather profile data from climate prediction models with component-level fragility functions. A case study is then carried out to quantify the resilience of Great Britain’s railway passenger transport system to high-temperature-related track buckling under the Representative Concentration Pathway 8.5 (RCP8.5) climate change scenario. A 95-year horizon on the resilience of the railway system is drawn. The results reveal the non-linear responses of the railway system to the increasing temperature and show that models considering random asset failures overestimate the system’s resilience.
