A variety of electrochemical techniques are used to detect and monitor material deterioration in service or in the field. This article describes the static or direct current measurements in a number of applications, including buried pipelines and storage tanks. It reviews the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and electrochemical noise measurements in a laboratory, especially for the inspection of coatings.
