Biocorrosion refers to corrosion influenced by bacteria adhering to surfaces in biofilms.
Biocorrosion is a major problem in areas such as cooling systems and marine structures where biofilms can develop.
This book summarises key recent research in this subject.
Part one looks at theories of biocorrosion and measurement techniques.
Part two discusses how bacteria and biofilms result in biocorrosion.
The final part of the book includes case studies of biocorrosion in areas as diverse as buildings, fuels, marine environments and cooling systems.
