The classification and analysis of the impact of external destabilizing factors on the structural elements of COI is given and, on this basis, individual and group continuous functions of the state of elements and the methods for their conversion into discrete states for the subsequent calculation of the material and functional damage is determined.</p> <p><em>Application field of research.</em> The results obtained can be used to quantify and analyze the sustainability of COI that perform critical functions under the conditions of influence of both internal and external destabilizing factors, as well as the development of specific measures (ways) to improve the functioning of stability COI.</p> <p><em>Conclusions.</em> Destabilizing factors are classified and individual and group continuous functions of the state of COI structural elements are determined. The methods for their conversion into discrete states are defined. The probabilistic nature of the impact of destabilizing factors and incomplete certainty in terms of resistance of elements and COI generally determine the subsequent forecast of their possible states at destabilizing influences as well as the analysis of possible ways of controlling the factors forming these states.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Journal of Civil Protection}, author={Bobovich Николай}, year={2017}, month={Feb.}, pages={94–98} }
