INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE FAILURES: A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS

The company's primary interest is in the safe operation of all insurable equipment and in the prevention of failure of that equipment, wherever possible, by means involving manufacturing, operation and maintenance, and inspection techniques. The equipment involved includes diesel and dual-fuel engines, spark-ignited gas and gasoline engines and internal combustion engines driving reciprocating compressors. The accident analysis coding system provides three basic categories under which each reported failure is coded for future analysis. These are: Type of Accident. Initial Part to Fail. Primary Cause of Failure. For convenience the items are handled in that order with a brief discussion following each.
