Subject: Failure Statistics
I'm looking for statistics on the major causes of failure on moving mechanical equipment. All of us have heard that incorrect lubrication is the biggest cause, but what is no.2, no.3 and so on? Ideally I need a respectable source, it's for a university assignment, but any help will be appreciated.
