Overview

Revised and updated, this second edition of Cathodic Protection of Steel in Concrete and Masonry covers both reinforced concrete and masonry structures, describes in detail the overall design factors involved in cathodic protection (CP), and also provides a theoretical basis for why it works. It refers to the new European standard EN 12696 for cathodic protection where relevant.

What’s new in the Second Edition:

  • Updates techniques and methods
  • Includes applications to new materials, and new examples
  • Considers the virtues and drawbacks of CP
  • Gives guidance on new practices, standards and their suitability

Cathodic Protection of Steel in Concrete and Masonry, Second Edition describes the CP systems, and their history, structure, the choice of remediation or life enhancement, design, installation, performance measurement, and costs. It includes examples of corrosion induced damage, diagnostic techniques and preliminary studies to facilitate effective CP system design, the effects of CP on the metal surface. It also explores the early use of CP, the various impressed current anodes, power supply categories practical considerations, and design criteria for the use of CP as a means of enhancing durability. It is especially written for practicing civil engineer professionals.
