    Abstract

    The effects of cathodic protection on corrosion fatigue of alloys can vary widely, ranging from strongly beneficial to strongly detrimental. This paper provides a concise synopsis of the subject, based upon a review of selected literature. Attempts are made to discern important generalizations concerning the effects of various cathodic protection levels on crack initiation and crack propagation in ferrous and nonferrous alloy systems.

    Keywords:
