The rate of the random variety of damageability
per flight D in expression (8) is connected with the random variety [sigma].
Once the intensity at each site is determined, whether in terms of wind speed, ground motion or pressure waves from a bomb blast, this information is fed into mathematical functions called damageability
relationships, which compute the impact on buildings and their contents.
Wind and earthquake engineers develop functions called damageability
relationships, which mathematically describe the effect of the event's local intensity on buildings and their contents.
The results show that the performance or damageability
of such systems is highly sensitive to a multitude of site- and asset-specific details that make quantification of the risk difficult using broadly categorized approaches typically found in risk models.
If your vehicle costs less to repair, it generally costs less to insure," said Gerry Bonanni, Ford damageability
collision repair senior engineer.
The model is designed to consider the unique characteristics of large industrial complexes, including: high business interruption losses, variability in the relationship between contents damageability
and facility type, and a high percentage of value associated with machinery, equipment, and stock.
In setting a rate, the underwriter must look beyond the value of the cargo to such details as damageability
of goods and how they are prepared for shipping; the type of transportation; the cargo's origin and destination; previous losses sustained by the shipper and the shipping line; whether the shipment will be containerized; and the shipper's practices once cargo arrives in port.
The work that Ford's repairability experts already have done with Ford's safety engineers has made the Focus's bumper bigger and stronger to better protect adjacent components," said Larry Coan, Ford Damageability
