Moffat, Brian G. and Abraham, Eitan and Desmulliez, Marc P. Y. and Koltsov, Dennis and Richardson, Andrew (2008) Failure mechanisms of legacy aircraft wiring and interconnects. IEEE Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation, 15 (3). pp. 808-822. ISSN 1070-9878Full text not available from this repository.
This paper presents a comprehensive list of the causes and modes of failure and ageing in legacy aircraft wiring and interconnects. Taxonomies of the electrical, mechanical, chemical and thermal stresses that contribute to the various stages of ageing and/or failure are presented. A Failure Modes Effects and Analysis (FMEA) is conducted to categorize the most serious failures. The order of severity in the FMEA is backed up by maintenance data gathered by the Royal Air Force (RAF) base Brize Norton during routine inspection.
