This volume in the book series New Concepts in Polymer Science deals with the damaging effects, which microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, etc. can have on a range of materials in machinery. The book aims to provide theoretical notions about the mechanisms of material damaging by microorganisms under operation conditions as well as to give recommendations for protection of technical articles and machinery.
This monograph consists of the following topics: finding of kinetic regularities, analytical models and quantitative indices for stages material biodamaging; study of influence of properties of materials, features of microorganisms, temperature, humidity and other factors on interaction between a material and a biodestructor; and, compilation of guidelines to determine and forecast biological resistance (bioresistance) of materials, development of means and methods for their protection as well as estimates of their efficiency.
This monograph will be of value and interest to researchers and engineers working in fields in which materials are subject to active microbiological aging and destruction.
Table of Contents
1. Modern ideas about biodamaging of materials and technical articles. Review of references 2. General investigation technique 3. Process characteristics and features of technical materials damaging by microorganisms under operation conditions 4. Adhesive interaction between microorganisms-destructors and materials 5. Growth of microorganisms-destructors on materials 6. Material properties variation under the action of microorganisms 7. Protection of materials and technical facilities against microbiological damage

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
