A corrosion data program sponsored by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers and the National Institute of Standards and Technology includes computer data base development to characterize the corrosion performance of engineering materials over a wide variety of environments and exposure conditions. The important features of corrosion data are reviewed from both the data source and the user standpoints. Guidelines are provided for data input format development, multiple source data compilation, data validation and evaluation, and interpretive data output schemes.
