Abstract:

Microbiologically influenced corrosion MIC has received increasing attention from engineers, materials scientists, and corrosion specialists. In field and laboratory studies, basic surface analytical examinations must be correlated to knowledge of the overall corroding system in order to conclude the presence of MIC. Preliminary observations and microbiological, chemical, microscopic, and metallurgical techniques are discussed. Microbiologically influenced corrosion MIC, Biofilms, Surface analysis, Biofouling, Biodeterioration.
