"abstract": "<p>The critical infrastructure resilience depends on several factors that go beyond the physical<br>\nreliability and capacity to repair the system after a disruption. The overall critical infrastructure<br>\nresilience includes aspects related to the social and economic backbone governing its capacity to<br>\ndeliver its service. This contribution presents a theoretical toolkit to calculate the overall resilience<br>\nof critical infrastructures developed within the European project LIQUEFACT for earthquakeinduced<br>\nsoil liquefaction disasters. The toolkit combine several aspects organized in three<br>\ndimensions: organizational and management, the physical or technical system and operational<br>\ncapacity to deliver the service. The toolkit clearly defines also resilience aspects, such as<br>\npreparedness, absorption, recovery and adaptation. For each dimension and aspect of the resilience<br>\nseveral indicators are developed. A critical and technical explanation of each indicator is here<br>\nproposed, as well a systematic methodology to combine them in the resilience toolkit. The novelty<br>\nof this study is the systematic analysis of dimensions, aspects and indicators that made the proposed<br>\nresilience toolkit original. The study is concluded with analyses of feasibility of the toolkit to natural<br>\ndisasters and applicability to localized disasters, such as earthquake-induced soil liquefaction<br>\nevents. Finally, the key factors of toolkit influencing a built asset model of critical infrastructures are<br>\nidentified.</p>",
