Failure Modes, Effects and Causes of Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion: Advanced Perspectives and Analysis presents academic research about microbial corrosion (MIC), integrating it into engineering applications that result in a more thorough understanding of MIC and how it is recognized and treated. In addition, new concepts that will be useful in understanding integrity and corrosion management practices are explored. This book will be useful for industry professionals, particularly maintenance and operation engineers, corrosion and material engineers, and R&D personnel working in the field of corrosion protection.

Key Features

  • Focuses on the skills and knowledge necessary to understand how (Failure modes) and why (Effects and Causes) materials fail
  • Explains why corrosion control measures, such as the use of coatings, cathodic protection and inhibitors are useful
  • Discusses the practical side of MIC treatment in terms of fundamental concepts of time and cost of operation


Materials Scientists and Engineers in both academia and industry, Environmental Scientists
