Biopolymers as Green Binders for Soil Improvement in Geotechnical Applications: A Review
Soil improvement using biopolymers has attracted considerable attention in recent years, with the aim to reduce the harmful environmental effects of traditional materials, such as cement. This paper
Surficial Stabilization of Wildfire-Burnt Hillslopes Using Xanthan Gum and Polyacrylamide
Post-wildfire erosion and the slope instability issues associated with it are a global problem that can negatively affect transportation corridors, the environment, and human life. Currently, mulch
Assessment of Physical Properties of Water Repellent Soils
