Impressed current cathodic protection has been successfully used for over a decade to effectively mitigate corrosion of reinforcing steel in chloride-contaminated concrete structures. The problems associated with the corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete and the validity of cathodic protection are discussed. A comprehensive review of the several types of cathodic protection systems and their component parts which have been used in the last 14 years to minimize salt-induced deterioration of reinforced concrete structures is presented.
