The concept of Disaster Resilience has received considerable attention in recent years and it is increasingly used as an approach for understanding the dynamics of natural disaster systems. The goal of this paper has two distinct tasks: (i) conduct a literature survey analyzing asset-based approaches for defining and measuring disaster resilience for physical infrastructures that is one of the seven dimensions of the PEOPLES Resilience Framework; (ii) identify the gaps between asset-based approaches and community-scale approaches. It is offered an overview of the models developed in literature to quantify resilience and performances of electric power, water, wastewater and natural gas utilities; communication companies and transportation networks as well as health care facilities. Discussion will be added related to strengths and weakness on how these approaches could facilitate the comparison of alternative resilience options/strategies and measure the speed with which disruptions can be overcome and community functions restored. A new geographic approach will be introduced to measure community resilience, focusing on spatial, temporal scale of resilience.
