Ratio between Material, Specific Density, and Breaking
All materials have a specific density, interaction with a force can impact and damage the materials in a relatively calculable way.
The denser the object, the more force it will take to move the object. This includes warping and denting.
X = material (in coordinates)
F= force (in the shape of the object that impacts the material)
D= Distance moved / Distortion (of the material)
D measured as= (Start Shape Coordinates) - (End Shape Coordinates)
B=breaking point - where the material breaks ~
If D> B, a new unit of material breaks off of the original material, perhaps at the point where D < B again.
This also applies if F per Unit is > B per unit
X:Y:F:D is a ratio that could be used to correlate and determine the strength of materials for calculations, in terms of simulating impact of different materials against impacting objects (cars on poles, cars on hay, etc).
Each area would have a different X, and different Y, given they were different materials.
In terms of shape of material, this would be measured as breaking point for a shape of a material, where a point of weak structural integrity would have a lower B than a point of high Structural integrity.
impact at one point, carries force to warp a point beyond the impact point of a curved structure beyond the breaking point and where D>B or F>B the material breaks.
B would be impacted by the angle of impact, and the shape of the material.
Perhaps useful for simulation, who knows, the equations could easily be incorrect, I have no experience in the field.
