The Author explains the principles of impressed-current and sacrificial cathodic-protection systems, and describes the characteristics and merits of the two types. Some practical aspects of these systems are then discussed, including relative costs and the choice of anode material for impressed-current systems. Data are given on anode materials, current densities, and characteristics of thermo-electric generators (a possible power source for low-power requirements). Some recommendations are given on choice of system. Design procedures and the various steps to be taken in designing the systems are listed. Order from BSRA as No. 54,921.
