BEASY, a world leader in corrosion modelling provides both corrosion modelling software and modeling services. With today’s need to reduce risk and uncertainty, we can quickly provide the answers you need on the effectiveness of corrosion control solutions.
How can BEASY help you?
BEASY’s Services offer specialized analysis in the area of Corrosion Modelling. Available services range from performing specific modelling tasks to comprehensive studies to determine the optimum design solution. Our engineers have extensive expertise in applying state-of the art BEASY Corrosion Modelling to solve complex corrosion control problems. BEASY engineers can quantify the level of protection provided to the structure without any simplifying assumptions.
What type of structures and materials can be assessed?
There are no restrictions on the structure geometry that can be modelled, and these can be offshore, subsea or onshore including shallow coastal waters. Materials include steel - coated or uncoated; other metals; reinforced concrete & hybrid structures. We can help determine how the CP system will perform over time so that you can improve the timing and quality of your inspection and maintenance programs. Using BEASY’s unique technology our staff can predict the location of damage based on data from field potential surveys or ICCP reference cell data. We can also estimate the service life of sacrificial anodes and the optimum location of ICCP.
For marine applications, the modelling process can be set up to allow for the effects of long term calcareous scale development, and to identify whether the structure will initially polarize. In addition, the facility exists to incorporate the effects of water flow rate profile and its impact on the behaviour of the immersed area of metal.
Optimize CP System Designs
Computer models are the ideal solution to test the sensitivity of a proposed design to environmental factors and long term coating degradation. The protection potential distribution achieved and the current demand on the anodes can be predicted, for example, under different coating conditions and the most cost effective system identified. Attenuation (eg in pipelines, ribbon anodes and cabling) losses can be addressed.Circuits representing components in an ICCP system can be constructed.
Support Planning Of Maintenance
Data from computer modelling can make a valuable contribution to Risk Based Inspection planning and interpretation of data by providing information to enable you to know with confidence what is occurring on your structure at any time. Thus timings of future maintenance and retrofits can be optimized.
Reduce Costs through Improved Inspection Strategies
Use computer models to determine what the data really means and optimise the planning of surveys.
