We consider the Symmetrical Hierarchical Network and analyse its survivability under uncertainty conditions. A formula calculates the optimum value of circular reserve of the symmetrical hierarchical network. We take into account the possibility of optimising the flow distribution after the fault. We suppose that the remaining capacity will be known. The guaranteed evaluation of the functional capability of the symmetrical hierarchical network assumes finding the worst distribution of the destruction. References
