    Abstract

    The computer simulation of galvanic corrosion systems has been shown to provide accurate information that can be used to improve design and avoid costly failure. The systems capability to model any general geometry coupled with the ability to accept a wide variety of forms of polarization data enables its effective use in a wide variety of marine and industrial applications. A number of cathodic protection applications are presented as a special case of galvanic corrosion.
