Abstract:

In evaluating the expected damage probability in lethality programs two approximations are in use The vulnerable area method and the exposure function method. A mathematical demonstration is presented which shows that both approximations give positively biased estimates for the expected damage probability and that the exposure function method is better than the vulnerable area method.
