Cathodic Protection Model Facility

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Performs Navy design and engineering of ship and submarine impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) systems for underwater hull corrosion control and evaluation/analysis of electric field (EF) and corrosion related magnetic (CRM) signature.DESCRIPTION: The facility consists of 30-ft-diameter modeling tanks with state-of-the-art multi-channel electrochemical controller, sensors, and datalogging capability. The physical models, which range from 1/2 to 1/96 th scale represent exact geometry and provide data for ICCP system design and for computational science and technology. Capabilities include the ability to control electrolyte conductivity, lifecycle/failure mode analysis, dynamic flow situations, equipment design, and EF signature analysis.INSTRUMENTATION: 50,000-gal and 100,000-gal modeling tanks, 30-zone analog and 60-zone digital controller capability, AISHE Controller (SSN 774), static/dynamic flow simulation, seawater simulation and stabilization, advanced scanning underwater EF/magnetic sensors, scale class models for CG, DDG, LHD, LHA, LCS, LPD, CVN, AOE, MCM, FFG, SSN (688, 21, and 774), and experimental hulls.
