Soil-side corrosion of the bottom plates of aboveground storage tanks is the main cause of tank failure. A case study is discussed in this paper, in which failures of three storage tanks were investigated. Soil analysis revealed high salt content and low resistivity.
Electrical resistance (ER) corrosion measurement probes, used for internal corrosion monitoring, are now referred to as soil corrosion probes (SCP) when used in soil-side applications.
