Abstract

The aim of this article is the determination of the microbiological medium quality, with the variation of important parameters, acting on metallic materials. The varied parameters were pH of microbiological medium, temperature and time of exposure of metallic material, type FeP-05-MB. After the action of microorganisms, the metallic material is subjected to a stretching-compression test choosing the limit yield as response function. This is influenced by the action of the microbiological medium at different values of parameters. The quality of microbiological medium determines some influences in the action of microorganisms on the metallic material studied.

Keywords
