Cathodic protection is used to protect steel from corrosion which is caused when two dissimilar metals are submerged in an electrolytic substance such as water, soil, or concrete. This type of metal conducting path between the two dissimilar metals allows a pathway through which free electrons move from the more active metal (anode) to the less active metal (cathode). If free electrons from the anode do not reach active sites on the cathode before the arrival of oxygen, ions at the active sites can then recombine to produce ferrous hydroxide, i.e. rust.
Also known by the term DLV, this defines the volume occupied by the person that may not be penetrated by a protective structure, in accordance with the prescribed ISO 3164 standard.
