Relationship Among Statistical Distributions, Accelerated Testing and Future Environments


The relationships among future environments, accelerated testing and statistical distributions are discussed. A stepwise procedure for predicting performance is described which starts first with defining environments. Next steps include definition of modes and submodes of corrosion, the definition of materials, and superposition of environmental and mode definitions. Incorporating the dependencies of environmental variables in distribution parameters is discussed.
