MODULAR ENGINE MAINTENANCE CONCEPT CONSIDERATIONS FOR AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINES

The modular engine maintenance concept offers great potential for cost of ownership savings in reduced overhaul costs, spare engine requirements and transportation costs. The potential savings are enhanced when the initial engine design incorporates the modular concept. The capability must exist to isolate failure modes to a particular module of the engine. This capability should exist at the base level and include analytical and inspection techniques. The failure modes can be classified as either affecting the structural integrity or performance output of the modules. The structural failure modes are usually determined through indirect means, and the failures affecting performance through direct methods such as gas path analysis.
