Aluminium alloy sacrificial anodes are often used to protect marine structures due to their high electrochemical properties. Anodes are often immersed in seawater when the tank is ballasted and dry with the tank empty. We study the properties of an Al-Zn-In-Cd alloy anode with cyclic immersion in seawater in the laboratory.
There is big initial and small mean current density for offshore platforms. Sometimes the former is twice of the latter. DNV-RP-B401 suggests minimizing anode size and density. NACE-RP-0176 recommends utilizing more anodes. This paper introduces a new method by wing section sacrificial anode with large surface area in the initial period.
This technical report presents state-of-the-art information on several commercially available galvanic cathodic protection/prevention systems for protecting atmospherically exposed reinforced concrete structures. The information contained in this report has been provided by key manufacturers of these systems and is intended as a technical resource for engineers responsible for the rehabilitation of reinforced concrete structures. It may also be useful to owners, contractors, and other practitioners related to the field of galvanic cathodic protection (CP). All information related to galvanic CP is intended for atmospherically exposed concrete structures and may not be applicable to concrete containing epoxy-coated reinforcing steel, galvanized, or other coated or nonferrous reinforcement.
