Torlable Curve

Torlable Curve

Sep 5th, 2011

The “total” risk for each scenario can be calculated, and when applicable, it is possible to evaluate which portion of that risk lies above the tolerability

When probability and consequences of a scenario are evaluated, the total risk is equal (p*C) to the surface of the rectangle (sum of orange and blue areas). The blue area is the tolerable part of that scenario, the orange part is the intolerable portion. NB: the log-log scale requires some attention when interpreting the relative size of surfaces, as shown in the bar diagram at the right, in decimal scale.
