A two-year study of corrosion and protection of ductile iron pipe. Field and laboratory evaluations of short and long term polarization rates. Corrosion rate reduction and cathodic current criterion. Benefits of the traditional, standard asphaltic shop coating. A database of 1379 inspections of buried iron water lines. Result: A risk based protection design strategy for buried ductile iron pipelines.
The objective of the research summarized in this paper was to define pipeline conditions where use of the 100-mV polarization criterion may be conducive to possible SCC problems. Paper Number 01592, presented at Corrosion/2001, summarized Part 1 of the research, in which the previous research results were analyzed. In this paper, the results of the laboratory testing are presented.
