External corrosion is commonly mitigated by coating the structure with a high resistance film and by employing cathodic protection (CP) to protect regions that are inadequately coated or where the coating has degraded. Defects in the coating are termed holidays, and such holidays can expose bare steel. The objective of this paper is to explore the state-of-the-art in computer models for cathodic protection. The emphasis is placed here on mitigation of corrosion of underground pipelines, but the…
