The new Corrosion Protection Optimisation software has been released by Computational MechanicsBEASY (UK) and successfully delivered to the first customer – the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL). The new module automates many of the tasks associated with CP system design and signature modelling. Tasks are simplified through the use of a “wizard”, which guides the user through processes to achieve the objectives. The wizard also provides a spreadsheet type view of all the model data and enables model parameters to be changed quickly and new solutions to be obtained.
This new Corrosion Optimisation product, used in conjunction with the BEASY Corrosion and CP Software provides a comprehensive solution for engineers who need to:
- Optimise CP system operations;
- Identify optimum anode location;
- Design ICCP control parameters;
- Minimise signatures.
BEASY Corrosion and Cathodic Protection (CP) can be used by the designer to predict the potential levels both on a structure and in the electrolyte and determine the current level on the structure and anodes. Build up of calcareous scale can be simulated and the long-term behaviour of the system predicted. It can be used to study any electrostatic problem and can also be applied to stray current corrosion problems, electrode position problems and computing the electric field surrounding any system.
