    Abstract

    In 1938 a subgroup of Subcommittee VI on Atmospheric Corrosion of A.S.T.M. Committee B-3 on Corrosion of Non-Ferrous Metals and Alloys was set up to decide whether sufficient returns to justify the effort expended were being obtained from the statistical calculations being made as part of the Subcommittee VI program. This subgroup reported that some statistical calculations were still justified but that trouble (due to lack of statistical control in the test data) had been encountered which required further study. Subsequently, Subcommittee V on Statistical Analysis and Planning was established. The objectives of this subcommittee were (1) to continue the studies of the earlier group, (2) to provide aid to other subcommittees in the planning of corrosion tests, and (3) to aim at the compilation of a booklet or series of papers on the application of statistics to corrosion testing which could be readily understood by corrosion engineers.
