An effective and efficient impressed cathodic protection system by laying a continuous shallow anodes bed in close proximity to the tank foundation. Some of the merits of this installation include elimination of shielding effects or interference from other structures and uniform protection of the entire tank bottom.
Chloride induced corrosion is recognized as a significant disease in the nation's concrete infrastructure. This paper will provide an overview of the various corrosion mitigation techniques available and then focus on two innovative methods of using discrete anodes embedded within the concrete to provide corrosion protection to existing structures.
How calcareous deposits formation in seawater influences the performance of a galvanic cathodic protection (CP) system in seawater. Coupling current measured. A resistance set between the cathode and the anode simulated circuit resistance of CP. Steel cathode potential over immersion time. Calcareous deposits analyzed by X-Ray Diffraction.
