- An integrated approach to the prediction of corrosion related electric and magnetic fields as well as the effectiveness of ICCP systems has been presented.
- The software tool provides a mechanism for optimisation of the design and operation of ICCP systems.
- The 3D model enables the impact of small changes to the geometric design, coating condition, location of anodes etc to be assessed.
- The accuracy of the solution is superior to dipole type models as the three dimensional electric fields are captured, eg, changes to both vertical and horizontal position of the anodes can be assessed.
