Table 1 The research status of the mechanisms of deterioration of earthen sites

From: Study on the linear absent section ratio (L-ASR) of earthen sites and anthropogenic influence from the perspective of population density

Deterioration Types Deterioration Causes References
Property deterioration, structure damaging, structure collapse, and site destroying Low precipitation with occasional very short heavy rainstorms, high temperature difference, high evaporation, freeze–thaw cycle, strong winds, and seismicity [13]
Wind-related deterioration, water-related deterioration, temperature-related deterioration and chemical-related deterioration Engineering properties of soil, stability of platform, and environmental impacts [15]
Cracks, gullies, collapses, sapping, and scaling off Engineering-related parameters of the rammed earth, meteorological factors, and building technologies [5]
