Application of FMEA matrix for prediction of potential failures in hydraulic cylinder

Joanna Fabiś-Domagała


This paper presents Failure Mode and Effects Analysis using relations diagrams and matrices similarity method application on the hydraulic cylinder. Functions for each hydraulic cylinder components were identified as well as a pairs for interacting components. Also potential failures were defined. Using the principle of matrices similarity the rank of hydraulic component due to performed functions has been prepared.
