    Abstract

    Accurate computational simulations require combining established numerical procedures, including modeling techniques, with accurate material characterizations. Accurate computational simulations also require an understanding of the physical phenomenon represented in a particular problem. The current work defines the steps required for the creation of an accurate computational simulation. A review of existing corrosion related computational simulations is incorporated into the discussion. An example case history of the creation of a computational simulation of a prototypical surface ship impressed current cathodic protection system is presented.
