dc.description.abstractEarthquake early warning (EEW) systems deliver actionable information seconds before the arrival of damaging seismic waves from an oncoming earthquake at a target site. Such information can potentially contribute to mitigating the negative impacts of earthquakes on the operation of infrastructure assets. EEW-related decision making should use risk-based protocols, and the evaluation of the benefits of EEW systems should address all the possible rupture scenarios that may affect a specific location (or asset). This paper addresses these requirements for EEW on railway bridge structures. We first develop a risk-informed EEW decision support system (DSS) for these assets, combining information on site-specific seismic hazard, time-dependent EEW algorithm outputs, probabilistic seismic demand modeling, damage and derailment fragilities, and seismic loss models. These components are integrated into a multi-criteria decision-making framework that accounts for diverse stakeholder perspectives on risk. We then propose an approach for quantifying the loss-mitigation benefits (i.e., effectiveness) of the EEW-DSS across all possible relevant rupture scenarios affecting a railway bridge, based on value of information theory and accounting for dynamic accuracy/lead-time trade-offs related to EEW performance. A multi-span reinforced concrete railway bridge in Northeastern Spain is adopted as a testbed to showcase the proposed EEW-DSS and investigate its benefits. The findings from the analysis shed light on the importance of risk-based, uncertainty-informed, and stakeholder-oriented decision making to the loss-mitigation effectiveness of EEW for a railway bridge.
