Abstract: Considering the reliability in modeling of facility location problems is one of the most effective ways to hedge against failures of system from time to time. In reality, the combined facility location network design problem with respect to system reliability has a number of applications in industries and services. In this paper, a mixed integer non linear programming formulation is developed to model the combined facility location network design problem incorporating the option of facility hardening to hedge against the risk of facility disruptions. The new mathematical formulation first considers different costs including facility location, link construction, and transportation costs; it particularly takes the facility hardening cost of the system into account. Then, the proposed model is linearized by suitable techniques and, at the follow; a practical numerical example is presented in detail to illustrate the application of the proposed mathematical model. The results demonstrate the capability of the model.
