Fundamental and applied aspects of microbial corrosion and use of inhibitors to control corrosion. Topics may cover diagnosis of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), detection, measurement, monitoring techniques; material behaviour under bio-films, MIC control strategies including biocides, microbial corrosion inhibitors, bio-electrochemical techniques, case studies on MIC, corrosion failures; futuristic trends and new tools for detection and control. Corrosion inhibition implied under this symposium covers behaviour of organic, inorganic and newly termed green inhibitor compounds and also polymeric compounds intended for industrial corrosion preventive applications. Papers may also include effects on mechano-corrosion behaviour of materials under the influence of corrosion inhibitors.

Chair: Prof. Thomas Ladwein; Vice Chair: C. KannanSubmit Abstract
Corrosion monitoring and testing is the primary step to identify the causes of failure of components, plants and equipments, which in some cases can be catastrophic. Monitoring and testing using different techniques help one to establish defects in materials right from the manufacturing stage to those that get created during operation/service stage. Early detection and sizing of corrosion degradation helps to assess the extent of damage, find out the root cause, take preventive actions and as a long term strategy integrate these into preventive maintenance schedules and plant safety management. This symposium covers all the monitoring and testing techniques e.g. non-destructive tests, online monitoring techniques and sensors and probes. Research & development on these techniques, case studies related to establishment of corrosion damage and/or its prediction, material selection and training of personnel for specific skill sets, remaining life assessment. Plant experiences related to corrosion monitoring and testing are welcome.
