Prediction of MIC is diffitult, as it is a very local corrosion process, influenced by many different elements. Environmental characteristics, material properties, biofilm conditions. They all have an effect on the probability or likelyhood for material degradation to take place.
Life of an asset manager would become a lot easier if he could mathematically predict where, when and how fast material loss could take place. At Corrosion Alliance we have provided a platform to several initiatives. Within the second module of our MIC masterclass, we have included a thermodynamic based approach to predict microbial community behaviour.
Expert Dr. Reza Javaherdashti has given a webinar on mathematic based approaches.
