Cathodic Protection of RC Structures

The paper describes the principles of cathodic protection (CP); this offers an effective method of inhibiting electrochemical corrosion of the steel reinforcement in concrete and provides an alternative method of treatment for reinforced concrete (RC) structures likely to suffer (or suffering) from corrosion problems in aggressive environments. It also describes methods of controlling and monitoring the eflicacy of installed CP systems and provides two examples of the use of cathodic protection. S.C. Das
