AC Induced Corrosion of Underground Steel Pipelines. Faradaic Rectification under Cathodic Protection: II. Theoretical Approach with Electrolyte Resistance and Double Layer Capacitance for Bi-Tafelian Corrosion Mechanism

  • Publish Date: 2015-11-09

Research Abstract:

AC corrosion enhancement of buried steel pipe is induced by high stray AC electromagnetic field and to the faradaic rectification due to non-linearity of current-potential characteristics. In Part I, this phenomenon was evaluated by neglecting the electrical resistance of soil electrolyte. In this part, we will examine when this resistance is no longer negligible.
