FMEA analysis of potential failures of turbochargers for combustion engines by the use of the simularity method

Joanna Fabiś-Domagała


This paper presents an FMEA analysis of turbochargers for combustion engines by the use of the similarity method and dependency diagrams. Typical functions of selected components of turbochargers were defined and the dependency between them identified. Potential failures that may appear during operation have also been defined. Using the principle of similarity, potential failures have been defined and classified.
