CATHODIC PROTECTION OF MISSISSIPPI RIVER DOCK

A cathodic protection system, which was designed to protect the submerged portion of steel pilings supporting the tanker loading dock serving an oil terminal, is described in the article. Descriptions included are of a current requirement test and its results, which were used to determine the amount of current needed to protect the pier, the actual system that was installed and its performance, and a coupon test which was undertaken to obtain more information on current distribution and shielding effects on those pilings which were not receiving cathodic protection.
