The above figure illustrates four mechanisms for FOD ingestion. (A) Even a smooth surface is relatively bumpy to a small object such as a rock, bolt, gravel" etc. As this object is rapidly accelerated by the radial flow of perhaps 400 knots of the jet exhaust, it soon encounters a bump and bounces up, often into the engine intake flow which is also at a high velocity, and thus into the engine.
