Contrary to all engineering discipline that study how to “make” structures, corrosion deals with how to control “failure” of these structures. The overall cost of corrosion could reach to be equal to 6 % of the Gross Domestic product of a country (GDP). Microbial corrosion is corrosion induced by organisms particularly by bacteria. The cost of microbial corrosion could reach to 40% of the cost of corrosion.
In this seminar, a world-renowned expert in MIC, Dr. Javaherdashti will talk about important, practical aspects of MIC in, mainly, metal pipelines. Dr. Javaherdashti is a well-known authority in the field of corrosion and particularly microbial corrosion.
