The problem of finding the minimum total cost edge capacities, such that all demand vectors in a given set are non simultaneously satisfied, is analyzed both for directed and non directed networks. In both cases the optimal solution is shown to be the sum of basic networks with suitable uniform edge capacities that can be obtained with standard shortest path algorithms.
