Symposium Frontiers of Materials Award Symposium: Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion - How Organisms Accelerate Materials Degradation
Presentation Title Cross-disciplinary Dialog Essential for Overcoming Challenges to Managing Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC)
Author(s) Richard B. Eckert
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Richard B. Eckert
Abstract Scope Biodeterioration in the form of corrosion results from a specific combination of physical, chemical, metallurgical and microbiological parameters that exhibit both independent and interdependent relationships. Even more so than for abiotic corrosion, MIC is a multidisciplinary subject - requiring knowledge of corrosion and materials science, microbiology, electrochemistry, molecular microbiological methods, fluid mechanics, asset design and operation, and other technical fields. Ineffective collaboration between subject matter experts and limited translation of knowledge to individuals directly responsible for managing MIC have been barriers to progress in controlling the threat of MIC. These barriers also impair the movement of industry toward environmental stewardship and sustainability. The need for creating a space and road map for better cross-disciplinary dialog is illustrated here through several case studies.
