Spanish term or phrase: coeficientes de imperfeccion global funcion
Hi,
this appears in the instructions for a Calculations Programme which calculates all the factors involved in Metal Shelving Installations. (Weight of load, stress factors etc). But this smells "mathematical" to me.. my one huge weak point ;-)

Here is the original context:

"El Nº de modulos considerados en el calculo puede no coincidir con los reales de la instalación, esta diferencia se tiene en cuenta a ser los coeficientes de imperfeccion global funcion del Nº de modulos considerados".

Thanks in advance for your help:

English translation:global defect index
Explanation:
Furthermore, it seems there's a missing word in the phrase:

"coeficientes de imperfeccion global *en* funcion del Nº de modulos considerados"

en función de/del = related to

Appreciate the comment. Isn't it funny how the obvious can stare you in the face and the words before or after stop you from seing it ;-) BTW The reference was incorrect - led to a blind alley.

Explanation:
"El Nº de modulos considerados en el calculo puede no coincidir con los reales de la instalación, esta diferencia se tiene en cuenta a ser los coeficientes de imperfeccion global funcion del Nº de modulos considerados"

"The number of modules consider in the calculus may not coincide with the real number on the instalation, this difference is taken as the global imperfection rate in relation to the number of modules considered."

Hope this is of help.

global imperfection coefficients


Explanation:
I also think there is a word missing,
but not the one proposed, I'd say it
is "se tiene en cuenta al ser los coeficientes de imperfección global función del número...". My proposal:
"this difference is taken into account/accounted for in view that the global imperfection coefficients are a function of the number of modules considered".
