Summary:
Computerized modeling techniques have been developed for the analysis of polarization behavior, using the expected chemical reactions and transport phenomena applicable to the formation of calcareous deposits. The method uses the ADINAT finite element heat transfer program and is modeled, as much as possible, on theory rather than laboratory measurements. In contrast, the presently available cathodic protection computer models base their polarization behavior on empirical data. The thesis presents experimental versus theoretical data for a simple flat plate configuration under cathodic protection in natural sea water over a range in temperatures. The flat plate allows for a simplified experimental apparatus and simplifies the derivation of equations for the transport phenomena. The program can, however, handle complex three dimensional geometries. Effects of temperature and flow on the formation and protection of calcareous deposits are also discussed in light of the experimental results.
