Concrete cathodic protection systems and services are designed to address corrosion problems in steel reinforced concrete. The major cause of corrosion in such structures is the presence of salt resulting from the application of de-icing chemicals, exposure to seawater or the use of contaminated aggregate in the original concrete mix.
has shown that corrosion can be reduced to a negligible degree by polarizing a steel structure to - 0.85 volt (protective potential) with reference to a copper-copper sulfate electrode. In such studies by the author, cathodic polarization curves have also been shown to be useful in indicating the current density required for cathodic protection.
Cathodic protection prevents corrosion by converting all of the anodic (active) sites on the metal surface to cathodic (passive) sites by supplying electrical current (or free electrons) from an alternate source.
Cathodic protection, the application of a small negative charge to the iron or steel, is being used increasingly to control corrosion of embedded iron and steel fittings and steel framework in stone and masonry clad buildings.
STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES integrates proprietary products and systems with specialized investigative and design support services to provide solutions for controlling corrosion in reinforced concrete and steel infrastructure.
Cathodic protection has also been applied to steel embedded in concrete, to copper-based alloys in water systems, and, exceptionally, to lead-sheathed cables and to aluminium alloys, where cathodic potentials have to be very carefully controlled.
Structures that are commonly protected by cathodic protection are the exterior surfaces of: Pipelines Ships' hulls Storage tank bases Jetties and harbour structures Steel sheet, tubular and foundation pilings Offshore platforms, floating and sub sea structures Cathodic protection is also used to protect the internal surfaces of:

Takeaway: Cathodic protection is one method used to prevent corrosion in pipelines, ships, offshore oil platforms, and other steel structures. Corrosion is a naturally occurring phenomenon commonly defined as the deterioration of a substance (usually a metal) or its properties because of a …
Cathodic protection systems (CP Systems) protect infrastructure assets such as above ground storage tanks, buried pipelines, reinforcing steel in concrete structures, heat exchangers, marine piles, sheet pile walls or other metallic structures from corrosion.
Design of Cathodic Protection of Rebars in Concrete Structures: An Electrochemical Engineering Approach Rengaswamy Srinivasan, Periya Gopalan, P. Ronald Zarriello, Christina J. Myles-Tochko, and James H. Meyer athodic protection is an electrochemical technique that minimizes the corrosion of metals in contact with any ionically conducting medium.
Cathodic protection (CP) is a technique used to control the corrosion of a metal surface by making it the cathode of an electrochemical cell.A simple method of protection connects the metal to be protected to a more easily corroded " sacial metal" to act as the anode.The sacial metal then corrodes instead of the protected metal.
Corrosion Mitigation & Structure Life Extension. Application or installation of corrosion mitigation measures such as specialized coatings or sacial anodes (cathodic protection) can help extend the useful service life of steel poles, towers, and other similar structures for many years.
Cathodic protection systems protect almost all kinds of metals in various environments. The most widely used applications are Steel pipelines which contain water or fuel, steel storage tanks, Steel pier piles, offshore oil platforms, onshore oil well casings and metal reinforcement bars in concrete buildings and structures.
of defence) with the added benefit of cathodic protection (third line of defence) achieved by the fact that zinc is electro-negative to carbon steel. The main barrier protection (first line of defence) is, of course, the concrete cover of the embedded reinforcement. Corrosion protection of reinforcement for concrete structures by R.E. Wilmot ...

The EPA has set deadlines for mandatory cathodic protection of all new steel underground fuel storage tanks and existing tanks. State and City ordinances throughout the nation require impressed current cathodic protection for many structures. These regulations are intended to protect the environment.

Structures in direct contact with coastal waters experience corrosion activity around the tidal and splash zone areas. Uncontrolled corrosion of reinforcing steel and prestressing strands in marine structures can decrease the life expectancy of a structure to a fraction of its design life.
All cathodic protection systems require an anode, a cathode, an electric circuit between the anode and cathode, and an electrolyte. Thus, cathodic protection will not work on structures exposed to air environments. The air is a poor electrolyte, and it prevents current from flowing from the anode to …
