Chapter 5-Statistical Treatment of Data, Data Interpretation, and Reliability
Pages: 6 Published: Jan 2005
MOST PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL measurements, performed under nominally identical conditions, yield differing data. The results of corrosion tests are no exception. Sometimes the difference between values is less than the measurement accuracy and cannot be detected. At other times the difference approaches the magnitude of the values. Unfortunately, corrosion test data tend to be in the latter category more often than in the former.
