Diagnosing microbiologically influenced corrosion MIC after it has occurred requires a combination of microbiological, metallurgical, and chemical analyses. MIC investigations have typically attempted to 1 identify causative microorganisms in the bulk medium or associated with the corrosion products. 2 identify a pit morphology consistent with an MIC mechanism, and 3 identify a corrosion product chemistry that is consistent with the causative organisms. The following sections provides discussion of available techniques, their advantages and disadvantages, and most importantly, their limitations.
- Physical Chemistry
- Properties of Metals and Alloys
