Given a set of commodities and a network where some arcs can fail while others are reliable, we consider a routing problem with respect to a survivability requirement that each commodity can be split among pairs of failure-disjoint paths. Two paths p and p′ form a pair of failure-disjoint paths if they share only reliable arcs. The same flow is sent over p and p′, but the flow sent on a common reliable arc is not doubled.

We present a compact linear formulation of the problem. Also three non-compact formulations solvable by column generation are introduced. In the first formulation, the generated columns correspond to pairs of failure-disjoint paths, while in the second formulation the generated columns correspond to simple paths. The third formulation is solved by generating pairs of arc-disjoint paths. All formulations are compared numerically. On top of that we study some generalizations and some special cases of the problem of computing a shortest pair of failure-disjoint paths. One of these generalizations is equivalent to a single-commodity capacitated network design problem.
