Cathodic Protection Calculation

The first thing you need to determine when calculate cathodic protection for pipeline is its cross-sectional area. In case for pipeline we can do it as:

cross-sectional-formula

After we get the cross-sectional area, now we need the area required for protection.
area-need-to-protect

We calculate the required current using this formula:
current-required-2

Consumption rate
