Component damaged classification [13].

Severity of damage Description

InsignificantDamage does not significantly affect structural properties in spite of a minor loss of stiffness. Restoration measures are cosmetic unless the performance objective requires strict limits on nonstructural component damage in future events.

SlightDamage has a small effect on structural properties. Relatively minor structural restoration measures are required for restoration for most components and behavior modes.

ModerateDamage has an intermediate effect on structural properties. The scope of restoration measures depends on the component type and behavior mode. Measures may be relatively major in some cases.

HeavyDamage has a major effect on structural properties. The scope of restoration measures is generally extensive. Replacement or enhancement of some components may be required.

ExtremeDamage has reduced structural performance to unreliable levels. The scope of restoration measures generally requires replacement or enhancement of components.
