Cathodic Protection
This article contains information about Cathodic Protection. Cathodic Protection is an electrochemical means of corrosion control in which the oxidation reaction in a galvanic cell is concentrated at the anode and suppresses corrosion of the cathode in the same cell.

Planned Interval Tests: Field/Lab Methodology to determine duration effects
An excellent technique for evaluating the influence of time on corrosion of metals and variations in the corrosive environment with time is called the "Planned Interval Test" (PIT). Corrosion coupons generally provide an average corrosion rate normalized over the period of exposure. The need for the PIT procedure arises due to variations in the general and localized corrosion rates with time as the test progresses. This effect usually results from either the formation or breakdown of protective ...
