Corrosion occurs on all metallic structures that are not adequately protected. The cost of replacing a structure which may have been destroyed or weakened due to excessive corrosion is substantial but avoidable, and means should be taken to consistently prevent or mitigate this added cost through cathodic protection. This course will introduce the concepts of sacrificial and impressed current cathodic protection with basic details and examples to understand their field application.
This 4-hr course material is based entirely on the US Army Corps of Engineers document EM 1110-2-3400, " Painting: New Construction and Maintenance and covers Chapter 2; "Corrosion Theory and Corrosion Protection and document TM 5-811-7, Electrical Design, Cathodic Protection.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
