ASTM E1970 - 16 - Standard Practice for Statistical Treatment of Thermoanalytical Data

ASTM E1970 - 16

Standard Practice for Statistical Treatment of Thermoanalytical Data

Status : Current   Published : April 2016



1.1 This practice details the statistical data treatment used in some thermal analysis methods.

1.2 The method describes the commonly encountered statistical tools of the mean, standard derivation, relative standard deviation, pooled standard deviation, pooled relative standard deviation, the best fit to a (linear regression of a) straight line, and propagation of uncertainties for all calculations encountered in thermal analysis methods (see Practice E2586).

1.3 Some thermal analysis methods derive the analytical value from the slope or intercept of a linear regression straight line assigned to three or more sets of data pairs. Such methods may require an estimation of the precision in the determined slope or intercept. The determination of this precision is not a common statistical tool. This practice details the process for obtaining such information about precision.

1.4 There are no ISO methods equivalent to this practice.
