    Abstract The aim of this paper is to present numerical simulations of Cathodic Protection (CP) Systems using a Genetic Algorithm (GA) and the Method of Fundamental Solutions (MFS). MFS is used to obtain the solution of the associated homogeneous equation with the non-homogeneous equation subject to nonlinear boundary conditions defined as polarization curves. The adopted GA minimizes a nonlinear error function, whose design variables are the coefficients of the linear superposition of fundamental solutions and the positions of the source points, located outside the problem domain. In this work, the anodes added to the CP system More >
