  2. In-situ Sensors for Cathodic Protection Interrelationships Modeling

    SBC: SENCONTROLOGY, INC.            Topic: 132PH2

    To adequately protect underground pipelines, a coating (including polyurethane foams) must conduct CP current when disbondment occurs. The realization of a reliable, multi-functional process/material system that can ensure urethane foams not only perform in harmony with CP, but establishing the worthiness of their continued use would be of major benefit to the national transportation system. Senc ...
