Abstract: The mode of action of sulphate-reducing bacteria causing corrosion in buried steel structures and pipes is reviewed. The most reliable test method is underground exposure at a suitable site, but this can take up to ten years to complete. A semi-continuous technique involving gradual replacement of the growth medium is described. Visual examination of the exposed samples was supplemented by potentiokinetic tests, which consisted of measurements of the current flowing at various times. It was shown that some correlation exists between the weight loss of the samples and the plot of the current against time, but that none exists between the weight loss and the plot of potential against log current.
