A method is provided for determining at least one faulty piece of equipment from amongst a plurality of pieces of equipment of an aircraft. A system is also provided that implements the method. The method comprises the steps of reading a plurality of predetermined parameters for monitoring said equipment; defining a list of symptoms associated with said parameters read, using a predetermined correspondence table; attributing a value associated with each symptom according to the parameters read, which value is selected from amongst a predetermined list of values; evaluating for each piece of equipment an occurrence of one or more fault modes for said piece of equipment on the basis of at least one predetermined truth table which associates a fault mode with each combination of symptom values; and determining at least one faulty piece of equipment from amongst one or more pieces of equipment, of which at least one fault mode is currently occurring, referred to as potentially faulty equipment.

A rotating assembly for a turbine engine, comprising a disc having an outer periphery having alternating slots and teeth, blades radially extending from the disc and roots of which are axially engaged in the slots, with spaces called slot cavities being provided between the roots of the blades and the slots, platforms laterally extending from the blades and circumferentially arranged end-to-end, so as to form spaces called inter-blade cavities, and a downstream annular shroud, comprising an outer annular sealing lip opposite the downstream ends of the platforms. The downstream shroud further comprises an intermediate annular sealing lip opposite the downstream faces of the teeth of the disc, radially between the slot cavities and the inter-blade cavities.

A rotating assembly for a turbomachine, including a disc having an external periphery with alternating recesses and teeth, blades extending radially from the disc and the feet of which are axially engaged and radially retained in the recesses of the disc, platforms extending on the circumference from the blades and being arranged end to end on the circumference, with respect to each other, axial sealing device upstream and/or downstream of an annular zone extending radially from the platforms up to the disc. The sealing device radially includes an internal annular portion and an external annular portion structurally distinct from each other, and the external annular portion of which is elastically constrained radially inwards by the internal annular portion.
