Subject: MTBF & Failure Modes
I'm working on a FMECA and I have a problem to find some reliability data on a component: a fire protection. This fire protection overlaps a rubber part and protect it against oil leakage coming from a turbopropeller engine. In fact, the fire protection is a specific foam which is expandable with the heat.
I don't find an equivalence within the NPRD-95 and FMD-97 respectively for the MTBF value and the associated Failure Modes.
It would be helpful if you could give some sources or data regarding this application.
Thank you for your help.

You can find some information in the OREDA database. There are fialure rate, maintainability information and failure mode.
Also in EIREDA.
