Types of Scatter Diagram

From a scatter diagram, curves are tentatively devised for linear and non-linear curves. With this, it can call two relationships between variables to linear and nonlinear relationships.

An example of the information required for evaluating the reasonableness of thickness data is presented figure. Figure show the range of thickness values observed for a given database. The observed or calculated range can easily be compared with typical values to determine reasonableness. The information presented can also be used to identify obvious anomalies, such as negative thickness values, thickness values close to zero, or extraordinarily high (e.g., 1,000-mm) thickness values. Analysis cells with erroneous test results are likely to exhibit excessive variability. For LTPP test sections with target test values (e.g., designed thickness = 200 mm), the information assembled by the univariate analysis or scatter plots can be used to determine whether the specified target values were obtained. Test results that are not close to the intended target values do not necessarily imply the presence of anomalies. Such results mean only that the targets were not achieved.
