  • testing for corrosion resistance - goal of accelerated corrosion testing, desired information about corrosion behavior of material;
  • measuring quantitative and qualitative parameters - corrosion behavior of engineered material system, at a given point in corrosion process;
  • sample size or replication selection - bitter rival to accelerated corrosion testing, spirited scientific debate crown


This chapter contains sections titled:

  • Introduction

  • Purposes and pitfalls of testing

  • Development, selection, and execution of meaningful accelerated corrosion tests

  • Concluding remarks

  • References
