Abstract:

As the replacement cost for jet engine components increases and the average age of the fleet starts to approach the traditional design life, major life cycle cost savings can potentially be accrued from a Retirement for Cause RFC approach to component retirement. This approach takes advantage of the ability of most members of a population or fleet of engine components to perform safely for several lifetimes longer than the traditional design life. This report presents details of the development and evaluation of an RFC methodology.
