Abstract

The Chilean National Research Center for Integrated Natural Disaster Management, CIGIDEN, was created in 2011 to develop, integrate, and transfer scientific knowledge to reduce the social consequences of extreme natural events. As one of its transfer products, CIGIDEN created a Disaster Management Simulation Lab (DMSLab) to deliver a practical training solution for disaster management. We propose a Virtual Test Bed to support the DMSLab by providing a simulation based, multi-disciplinary risk analysis platform. It will strengthen CIGIDEN's transfer and research integration capabilities, offering the tools and methodologies already being developed by the Center for emergency-based decision-making, optimization through simulation and humanitarian aid. A case study of a virtual disaster scenario developed with the Chilean National Emergency Office (ONEMI) is presented, to illustrate how the Virtual Test Bed can support research application in real scenarios.
