Microbiologically-influenced corrosion (MIC) is one of the greatest mysteries of corrosion science and engineering, due to the complexities resulting from the involvement of living things such as bacteria. Bacteria are not only able to affect our health, but are also capable of impacting upon everyday life through a wide range of industrial sectors and the economy.
Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion: An Engineering Insight introduces a new approach to the basics of MIC and explains how to recognise, understand, mitigate and/or prevent this type of corrosion. Topics explored include stress corrosion cracking and microbial corrosion, the pros and cons of biocides, the involvement of magnetic bacteria in microbial corrosion, and a new interpretation of cathodic protection based on recent research in microbial environments.
The material covered by Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion: An Engineering Insight will be of benefit to professional and consultant engineers in power generating, oil and gas, marine, and mining industries; as well as to researchers in the fields of chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, corrosion and mechanical engineering.
"I have purchased your 2008 Springer-Verlag book on MIC and have found it to be the best, most-readable book on the subject that I have found," Bob Heidersbach, Dr. Rust, Inc.
"Not many technical books are particularly readable. But this one is... Throughout the book the writing style is breezy and cheerful and the technical content exploratory and questioning rather than definitive and dogmatic." Materials and Corrosion, Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA), February 2012
"It draws together many young scientists and engineers with quite diverse backgrounds for various aspects of MIC research at more than 16 European research centres and industry partners" Materials and Corrosion, Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA), February 2012
