Abstract : There are many phenomena addressed by the vulnerability analysis community which are, in truth, time dependent. However, due to computational constraints, whether actual or historical, most such phenomena are treated in a manner that ignores or, at best, crudely approximates this time dependency. This report describes a method which could allow such dependencies to be added to existing vulnerability analysis software in a more physically realistic manner. It also describes a possible implementation of these ideas within a vulnerability analysis code. (AN)
