Summary of "The life span and influencing factors of metal mesh in artificial soil on railway rock-cut slopes in humid areas."

The stability of slope is strengthened by the metal mesh. The studies of the life span and influencing factors of metal mesh in the artificial soil in humid areas will guide ecological restoration of rock-cut slopes in Southwest China. Due to metal corrosion, the fixation function of the metal mesh could last for 10 years. The factors of soil contents, soil electrochemical properties and soil bacteria not only changed with the vegetation succession but also weakened the effect of the metal mesh on soil fixation for slope protection. The potential gradient, chloride ion content, sulfate ion content and water content were the main influencing factors for metal mesh corrosion during the vegetation restoration stage from 0 to 5 years, while the corrosion potential, potential gradient, chloride ion content, and water content were the main influential factors for metal mesh corrosion during the vegetation restoration stage after 11 years. At different vegetation restoration stages, the soil bacteria contained different dominant species, which had spatial heterogeneity, and the heterogeneity of the soil bacteria was another factor influencing the corrosion of the buried metal mesh. Meanwhile, the plant root as a soil fixation function strengthened with time, and 8 years later, the local woody plants gradually migrated to form a community dominated by multiple woody species. It is the first time that the life span of a metal mesh under the artificial soil of rock-cut slopes and factors affecting the different corrosion stages of the metal mesh in a humid area have been judged. The fixation function of plant root gradually replaces metal mesh, and main factors affecting the process include soil contents, soil electrochemical properties and soil bacteria. The research on corrosion factors of metal mesh under artificial soil for rock-cut slopes will contribute towards reducing the environmental risk of ecological restoration.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.

Behaviors expressed by individuals to protect, maintain or promote their health status. For example, proper diet, and appropriate exercise are activities perceived to influence health status. Life style is closely associated with health behavior and factors influencing life style are socioeconomic, educational, and cultural.

Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports clinical and basic research to establish a scientific basis for the care of individuals across the life span, from the management of patients during illness and recovery to the reduction of risks for disease and disability; the promotion of healthy lifestyles; the promotion of quality of life in those with chronic illness; and the care for individuals at the end of life. It was established in 1986.

A family of the order DIPTERA. These flies are generally found around decaying vegetation and fruit. Several species, because of their short life span, giant salivary gland chromosomes, and ease of culturing, have been used extensively in studies of heredity.
