Environmental influence on cathodic protection criteria for reinforced concrete structures. A theoretical approach


A theoretical study has been made showing the reflection of the environmental factors on cathodic protection criteria to be applied to reinforced concrete structures. It is found that lowering of the steel potential to a value less than -0.65 volt with respect to standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) provides adequate protection against corrosion irrespective of the variations in temperature, humidity and chloride content.
