This analysis is known as a valuable statistical method in synergistic studies. The austenitic stainless steels, AISI 304 and AISI 316 have been exposed to the synthetic seawater for this application. The experimental data are obtained from potentiodynamic polarization scan. Fundamental parameters influencing corrosion in this environment, salinity, velocity, pH and temperature are identified. Quantitative analysis has been used to predict the value of variation applied to the corrosion rate via the full two-level factorial experimental design method. This analysis results to the valuable engineering data, which makes the comparison of parameters’ effect possible. Quantitative analysis can assess the effects synergistically and considers all the possible contributions.]]>Al-Fozan, S.A. and A.U. Malik, 2008Al-Malahy, K.S.E. and T. Hodgkiess,2003Atashin, S., M.
