AbstractMore often than not, the results of experimental studies are reported in terms of averages, best-fit lines, confidence limits, and distribution functions. However, the most economically important use of statistics in corrosion is undoubtedly in the analysis of inspection results to estimate the corrosion rate of industrial plant. This chapter provides a basic introduction to the underlying mathematics behind the most commonly used techniques in the statistical evaluation of corrosion data, focused, in particular, on those methods that have either been customized for specific applications in corrosion, or seem most likely to be further developed by the corrosion community in the future. . © 2010 Copyright © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
