—The paper discusses the main issues involved in a simulation of complex interdependent systems, which are a part of the Critical Infrastructure (CI). The purpose is to present a common architecture for simulation of critical infrastructure interdependencies in emergency situations. An analysis of the interdependencies between critical infrastructure elements and explanations of the process of development HLA/RTI (High Level Architecture/Run Time Infrastructure) simulations for study of CI elements are carried out. The approach provides a possibility of performing an assessment of the elements of the CI and their interdependencies affected by emergency situations as natural disasters.
