1. Surface rainfall erosion resistance and freeze-thaw durability of bio-cemented and polymer-modified loess slopes.

Microbially induced calcite precipitation (MICP) has been shown to mitigate sand erosion; however, few studies have applied MICP on loess soils. In this study, polyacrylamide (PAM) was added to the cementation solution, and combined MICP-PAM treatment was applied to improve the surface erosion...
