This standard test method provides descriptions of the measurement techniques and cautionary measures most commonly used on underground and submerged piping other than offshore piping to determine whether a specific criterion has been met at a test site. This standard contains instrumentation and general measurement guidelines. It includes methods for voltage drop considerations when structure-to-electrolyte potential measurements are made and provides guidance to minimize incorrect data from being collected and used. This standard is maintained by Task Group 020.
CORROSION is the premier research journal featuring peer-reviewed technical articles from the world’s top researchers and provides a permanent record of progress in the science and technology of corrosion prevention and control. 70+ years and over 7,100 peer-reviewed articles with advances in corrosion science and engineering have been published in CORROSION.
This NACE standard presents guidelines for cathodic protection (CP) of reinforcing steel in buried or submerged concrete structures. These guidelines provide corrosion control personnel with information to control corrosion of conventional reinforcing steel in portland cement concrete structures through the application of CP. The guidelines presented in this standard are limited to CP systems for new or existing buried or submerged reinforced concrete elements.
