A proactive measure to increase the robustness of heterogeneously loaded
networks against cascades of overload failures is proposed. It is based
on load-dependent weights. Compared to simple hop weights, respective
shortest flow paths turn a previously heterogeneous load distribution
into a more homogeneous one for the nodes and links of the network. The
use of these flow paths increases the networks robustness and at the
same time reduces the investment costs into the networks capacity
layout. These findings are of relevance for critical infrastructures
like communication and transportation networks.
