How to Simulate Impressed Current Cathodic Protection
2 common methods for protecting metal structures against galvanic corrosion are sacrificial anode cathodic protection (SACP) and impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP).
The Boundary Element Method Simplifies Corrosion Simulation
As of version 5.4 of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, there are features for simulating corrosion in slender structures. This significantly speeds up the total time spent when working with structures such as oil platforms. By using the boundary element method (BEM) and specialized beam elements in the Current Distribution, Boundary Elements interface, there is no longer a need for a finite element mesh to resolve the whole 3D structure, saving time for large corrosion problems consisting of slender components.
