Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion is published by Springer in September 2016. This book has 216 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-3319443041.
Significantly extended from the first edition, this book presents the basics of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) in an accessible and concise manner. It explores strategies for recognizing, understanding, mitigating and preventing this type of corrosion, and investigates this topic from the point of view of an engineer. Chapters cover issues including stress corrosion cracking and microbial corrosion, the pros and cons of biocides, the involvement of magnetic bacteria in microbial corrosion, and cathodic protection based on recent research in microbial environments. The 2nd Edition provides new material examining the following topics:
*Mathematical modelling of MIC, in particular fuzzy logic
*A comparison of culture-independent methods with culture-dependent methods
*Further practical strategies for dealing with MIC
