FOD stands for Foreign Object Damage. It is a well known failure mechanism in the gas turbine. It occurs when a turbine part is damaged by an object, usually comes from outside. But FOD can also happens when upstream components break up and strike downstream components such as turbine blades.
Gas Turbine Maintenance Organization
The key to all satisfactory maintenance activity is planning. This is especially true when dealing with gas turbines. Even the simplest of maintenance tasks, whether it is recognized or not, requires some measure of pre-planning. A maintenance policy for gas turbines must address the increased importance of inspection and overhaul planning if unplanned outages are to be avoided. Each user regardless of the number or type of the engine must institute the following basic type of planning to be successful in gas turbine maintenance.
Some Intro to Gas Turbine Maintenance Philosophy
For industrial application, there are two distinct groups of gas turbines which require greatly different approaches of maintenance. They are the aircraft derivatives and the heavy duty industrial
