Corrosion Protection of an Oil Platform Using Sacrificial Anodes

Application ID: 13203


Steel structures immersed in seawater can be protected from corrosion through cathodic protection. This protection can be achieved by an impressed external current or by using sacrificial anodes. The use of sacrificial anodes is often preferred due to its simplicity. This example models the primary current distribution of a corrosion protection system of an oil platform using sacrificial aluminium anodes.
