Cathodic protection (CP) mitigates the high cost of steel corrosion and  other alloys in seawater and seabed sediments. Marine Corrosion and  Cathodic Protection is a comprehensive guide of corrosion issues and  presents theories to tackle common offshore code-based CP designs.  Advanced theory is developed for non-routine CP applications, with and  without subsea coating systems.
The interactions between CP and  the fatigue and hydrogen embrittlement characteristics of alloys are  explained. Sacrificial (or galvanic) anodes and impressed current  systems are examined, which is followed by descriptions of successful  and unsuccessful applications on petroleum installations, harbours,  jetties, pipelines, windfarm foundations, ships and FPSOs. Retrofit CP  systems for the life extension of assets are evaluated, together with  methods for applying CP internally in both static and flowing systems. A  critical review of the role of physical and computational modelling in  CP design and evaluation addresses the more geometrically complex  applications. Techniques for, and limitation of, CP surveying,  inspection and monitoring are explained in the context of system  management.
This text is ideal for engineers, designers, manufacturers, equipment suppliers and operators of offshore CP systems.
