Abstract

The corrosion prevention capability of shipboard impressed current cathodic protection systems are effected by the geometry of the ship hull, conductivity of the surrounding water, material polarization response and any material interactions. Changes in system configuration and service environment from those used in design analysis require the capability to analyze system performance under varied circumstances. While individually limited, experimental scale modeling and computational boundary element modeling techniques can be used in concert to design a robust system and to provide
