The revised criteria also incorporate a change to the way that Fitch applies recovery notching
for junior subordinated certificates (class C and D).
guidelines for rating Basel III-compliant capital instruments are as follows:-
In addition to the ~3.5 dB deeper mean notch depth when the notching
was bilateral, the histograms of the RE notch depths of unilateral notches (striped) and bilateral notches (shaded) shown in Figure 7 demonstrate that the distributions of the unilateral and bilateral notch depths were different.
Lobsters collected for the experiment reflected the criteria for lobsters eligible for notching
in the field; therefore, only female lobsters that were not egg bearing and had no visible signs of shell disease were chosen.

In general, falling-weight tests are easier to use because no notching

of the blank samples causes the fracture energy per unit thickness to decrease slightly (about 12% for bs- and 6.5% for n*-notched) from the corresponding value of the untreated samples.
