ABSTRACT

This report briefly summarizes some of the developments introduced in the last couple of years in the EUROPLEXUS computer code for the simulation of transport infrastructures vulnerability, in particular railway stations, metro stations and rolling stock. It also presents some final demonstrative numerical simulations performed in order to analyze typical scenarios of terrorist attacks to these types of infrastructures.
