Summary:
The influence of hydrodynamic parameters and limiting current density by cathodic protection on a steel cylinder in flowing water is investigated. The limiting current density variations along the circumference of a circular cylinder are determined for different flow velocities. Several methods are also used to relate the cathodic current density distribution to variations in hydrodynamic and diffusional boundary layer thickness along the circumference of the cylinder for laminar and turbulent flow regimes. a comparison of experimental current densities on a cylinder to that predicated by theory is also examined.
