The corrosion of the steel reinforcement in concrete caused by
chloride intrusion is a problem affecting thousands of concrete
structures throughout the world. Cathodic protection is highly
regarded as one of the most cost-effective techniques for its
treatment and its use continues to grow worldwide. Cathodic
Protection of Steel in Concrete provides a comprehensive summary of
the electrochemical techniques for treating steel corrosion to
date. It contains an examination of the causes of corrosion and its
accelerating rate and describes assessment methods. The practical
techniques used to design a cathodic protection system are
described as well as an assessment of the different types of anodes
and power supplies available, their advantages and limitations. The
different techniques for judging the effectiveness of cathodic
protection are compared and its economic benefits are examined in
comparison with other available techniques. The application of
cathodic protection to new structures is described and the book is
illustrated throughout with practical examples. This is an
essential guide for the engineer who wishes to understand and
utilize this important technology.
