Job Description
We would like to hire a physicist or materials scientist to assess the shortcomings of an insurance report regarding damage that commercial ovens caused to restaurant kitchen floors at a San Francisco property. Specifically, we require the one-page Analysis section of the mentioned Report to be scrutinized for its method and approach.

The applicant would produce the written assessment about the flaws of the Report in a brief letter.

The shortcomings/biases of the Report include but are not limited to: (1) the location where the kitchen floor damage occurred was a result of the heat emitted from the commercial ovens but the Report does not connect "damage" to "location of damage" as caused by the ovens and, (2) the expert study cited in the Report from the Journal of the International Academy of Wood Science for heat and plywood damage is not relevant to the rapid fluctuations of commercial oven heat and the type of damage commercial oven emissions cause to underneath flooring. The calculation of the damage sustained by the plywood due to heat exposure cannot be undertaken mathematically as a linear function. The Analysis section of the Report is silent about temperatures emitted from below a commercial oven and only mentions how plywood would react to temperatures of 75 Celsius for a period after 8 hours.

The assumptions of the Report should have included the plywood's exposure to commercial ovens operating at 200+ Celsius for 168 hours (14 days) at 12 hour intervals when the restaurant is open for business. The assumptions of the Report should also have included that the oven could have caused the plywood deterioration within a period less than 14 days. A busy restaurant cannot be expected to turn down the heat of its commercial ovens during the course of the day when customers await rapid service.

Finally, after scrutinizing the method and approach of the Report, the applicant should suggest a methodology, scientific studies, and/or sources that allow calculating plywood reactions to temperatures above 200 Celsius over a 12 hour period.
