EVOLUTION OF CATHODIC PROTECTION SYSTEMS USED ON STEEL REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES . PROCEEDINGS OF 3RD INTERNATIOAL CONFERENCE ON DETERIORATION AND REPAIR OF REINFORCED CONCRETE IN THE ARABIAN GULF, BAHRAIN, OCTOBER 21-24 1989. VOLUME 1.
Cathodic protection is not a new process. It has been used on structures such as buried steel pipelines, ship hulls and steel facilities near or in salt water for over 100 years. In the last decade, changes, specifically in anode material and the conductive medium that surround the anode, have made cathodic protection a viable repair option on virtually all types of steel reinforced concrete structures. This paper will discuss the evolution of steel-in-concrete cathodic protection from the first system used on a bridge deck over a decade ago, to the current systems available for a wide variety of structures.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 828897.
