Rare anomalies may be introduced during the metallurgical or manufacturing processes that may lead to uncontained failures of aircraft gas turbine engines. The risk of fracture associated with these anomalies can be quantified using a probabilistic fracture mechanics approach. In this paper, a general probabilistic framework is presented for risk assessment of gas turbine engine components subjected to either inherent or induced material anomalies. A summary of efficient computational methods that are applicable to this problem is also provided.
