... of microbial activity and the corrosion process. Then, various mechanisms that influence corrosion in microorganisms are discussed. The focus is on the incremental activities needed to assess the role played by microorganisms, if any, in the overall scenario. The article presents a case study that illustrates...

... Microbes initiated SCC failures in admiralty brass condenser tubes in a nuclear plant cooled by freshwater ( Ref 1 ). About 2500 tubes had to be replaced over a span of six years' operation. Analyses were carried out for microorganisms, water chemistry (for both intake and outfall), and corrosion products...

... metallurgist or metallographer is certainly familiar with the phenomenon known as microbiologically influenced corrosion, or MIC. However, many new to the field may be surprised to learn that there are microorganisms that can actually corrode metal via iron-oxidizing or sulfur-reducing processes. MIC...

... ). A wide range of microorganisms has been isolated from various locations on the aircraft, including 158 bacteria, 36 yeasts, and 14 fungi, all of which were heterotrophic facultative aerobes or anaerobes. Only one SRB was detected. Exposure of aluminum 7075 to cultures of these isolates showed that 27...
