In this paper, the experiments on the wall thinning rate by the liquid droplet impingement in literature are studied by examining the erosion process, the method of erosion tests and the measurement accuracy of droplet velocity. Although the wall thinning rates scatter among the researchers, they come to a consistent result when the experimental conditions are considered. The power index of droplet velocity in the wall thinning rate ranges from 6 to 8 for the water jet and spray tests, while that of the rotating disk test shows smaller power index 5.8, which is closer to the theoretical value 5. The difference in the power indices is expected to be due to the influence of liquid film over the test specimen.
