Procor : Cathodic protection simulation

Banner Procor Software


The most powerful software for cathodic protection :

hybrid systems verification and design



Industrial requirements


Verification and validation of existing protection systems: help for decision

Optimization of hybrid cathodic protection: technically and economically.

Reduction of maintenance costs: evaluation of installations' life-time.

Optimization of the electric signature of military and non-military structures at sea.


Application domains


  • Structure installation: underground pipelines and buried, pumping stations, storage tanks
  • Maritime industry: military vessels, submarines, offshore structures, FPSO
  • Energy and utilities: complex storage capacity (corrosive liquids, chemical waste), water heater tanks
  • Renewable energy industry: offshore renewable power generators


Unique features


Computation of hybrid solutions for 100% efficient cathodic protection systems, supported by a validation process and on-site experimentation.

Accurate computation with complex geometry and polarization: ohmic drop in long structures, infinite domains, structural nodes...

Focused on non-homogenous and complex conditions: structures immersed, submerged or buried in various environments.

Access to a team of experts in failure analysis and root cause identification in corroded environments.



Computation strategies 


Decision assistant for best cathodic protection system choice

For new protection system design:

  • Select the best hybrid protection system: Galvanic anodes & impressed currents
  • Estimate the necessary investment
  • Estimate the anodes and structure life-time
  • Optimize the installation and maintenance costs
  • Specify the maintenance control points
  • Optimize the environmental impact of the cathodic protection


For existing systems verification:

  • Verify the efficiency of the protection
  • Identify under/over-protected areas
  • Control the current flux from anodes
  • Compute the polarization time
  • Estimate of the remaining life-time


Using an industrial software:

  • Modeling of structure's surfaces only
  • Used elements: 6-node trinagles, 8-node quadrangles, 3-node tubes
  • Integration of heteregeneous conductive media
  • Non-linear polarization laws
  • Dynamic polarization conditions in function of the polarization time
  • Integration of local defects and ageing of the coating
  • Electrical conditions in semi-infinite and infinite regions
  • Ohmic drop in the tubes
