Abstract : The most common application of cathodic protection is controlling corrosion on buried structures, such as pipelines and storage tanks. For underground structures, both impressed current and sacrificial anode cathodic protection systems are feasible and the most appropriate system is chosen based on life cycle cost for the system.
