Common scenarios for underground corrosion at foundations of telecommunication towers are explained, and practical methods for corrosion risk assessment and corrosion risk mitigation are briefly reviewed.  Among different types of corrosion control techniques, cathodic protection is proved to be an efficient and cost-effective method. Accordingly, a new simulation-based approach is proposed to improve the design of cathodic protection systems for foundations of telecom towers, with emphasize on electrochemical characteristics of the service environment and geometry details. Some capabilities of the approach are demonstrated through sample simulations for screw-pile foundations.

Keywords: underground corrosion, cathodic protection, electrochemical simulations, telecommunication structures
