To avoid any impact on the local environment, the pipeline will be installed inside a precast concrete lined tunnel. The tunnel is being excavated utilizing a 4.4...

Alkali resistance of coatings? Will tests of cathodic disbondment provide reliable statements to this question?

Denso
Denso
It is generally accepted that the effect of cathodic protection is based on the activation polarization and the concentration polarization of the steel surface resulting in an increase of the pH at the interface between steel and soil. This increase in pH value may affect the adhesion of the corrosion prevention coating in the immediate vicinity of...
