Abstract: The SYNER-G project aims at developing a methodology to evaluate the vulnerability to earthquakes of a complex system of interconnected infrastructural systems of regional/urban extension. This report describes the developed methodology, which is based on smart simulation of an object-oriented model of the system to account for the uncertainties involved (in the hazard, as well as in the system) and to tackle the complexity of the interactions existing within each system between its components, and across the systems. The methodology integrates within the same framework the hazard, the physical vulnerability and the social consequences/impact. The strength of the object-oriented foundation of the model is that it can be easily expanded and developed step-wise, allowing for multiple choices for each intermediate model. This allows also the integration of previous research results and models within a larger simulation framework for distributed infrastructural systems. The developed methodology is implemented in the SYNER-G software toolbox.
