A Study on Thermal Spraying Sacrificial Anode Applied in Concrete Structure Cathodic Protection


Article Preview

In this work, the thermal spraying sacrificial anode was investigated as reinforced concrete structure cathodic protection method. During our experiment, the performance of the thermal spraying sacrificial anode was studied using electrochemical method, metallographic microscopy method and simulation tests. And the results show that the thermal spraying sacrificial anodes are better than traditional sacrificial anodes. The method of thermal spraying applied in sacrificial anode field is successful, which solve the problem of insufficient driving initial potential of traditional sacrificial anode in the concrete structure.
