statistical approach to field inspection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You might consider building on the approach that FEMA
356 takes to quantify properties of existing materials
if original documentation is not available.

See for example paragraph 5.3.2.4 and the commentary. 
Quoting from the commentary..."If a higher degree of
confidence is desired, either the sample size shall be
dtermined using ASTM E22 criteria or....consider using
Bayesian statistics and other statistical procedures
contained in FEMA 274..."   

Sounds pretty complicated to me...
