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.
