Computerization of the wealth of available corrosion data facilitates both data access and interpretation to address specific user needs. Data collection and compilation can be enhanced by adoption of format standards which define guidelines for common terminology, documentation of performance measurement for both metals and nonmetals, data output and presentation, and for assessing data quality. Well-defined programs, using a variety of established computerization techniques, can serve as effective tools for selection of corrosion resistant materials, assessing material limitations, selection and design of corrosion control methods, and for gaining a better understanding of the significance and theoretical considerations relating to operative corrosion mechanisms.
