AC Corrosion of Pipelines covers the essential topics related to AC corrosion of pipelines, a problem affecting the safety and reliability of underground pipelines. In addition to the basic principles of AC interference induced by adjacent AC power lines and other sources, the book details the adverse effects of the interference on collocated pipelines, including corrosion and pitting corrosion, coating degradation, deviating of cathodic protection potentials, and the ineffectiveness of cathodic protection systems. Moreover, effective management measures to this problem are discussed. It also covers the DC interference and DC corrosion of the pipelines, as compared to the AC corrosion phenomenon. The book, the first of its kind, provides a complete and comprehensive understanding to the phenomenon from both the fundamentals and the author's research experiences.
The reader can learn and understand the basics associated with AC corrosion. Moreover, the book provides solutions and industry practice to mitigate, control, and manage AC corrosion of pipelines. The reader can thus learn the appropriate solutions to the problem. Finally, the book also includes DC corrosion of pipelines, in addition to AC corrosion, another essential problem to the buried pipelines with the increasing development of HVDC power lines. All of them contribute to improved knowledge base and recommended solutions for the actual problem threating the integrity and safety of pipelines.

New in 2019!This NACE International standard practice establishes the general principles to be adopted to minimize the effects of stray current corrosion caused by direct current (DC) and/or alternating current (AC) from external sources on steel reinforced concrete (RC) and prestressed concrete (PC) structures or structural elements. The standard practice offers guidance for the design of concrete structures that may be subject to stray-current corrosion; the detection of stray current interference; the selection of protection measures; and the selection of mitigation methods.
The purpose of this NACE International technical report is to provide basic information regarding the mechanisms involved with cathodic protection (CP) shielding for external coatings applied to carbon steel pipelines, and the manner in which the breakdown of coating systems may or may not contribute to CP shielding. It is intended to be a basic reference from which the tendency of a coating system to fail and shield CP may be understood on a conceptual basis. Non-corrosion-related pipeline protection systems, including concrete weight coating, polyethylene encasement, insulation, and mechanical pipeline protection systems, are outside the scope of this report. End users of this report may include pipeline designers, corrosion engineers, integrity management specialists, regulators, CP service providers, coating suppliers, coating service providers, equipment suppliers, and pipeline/facility owners.
