Paper Abstract

Simple shear test apparatus was modified and used to study the mechanical behavior of soil and concrete interface. Five types of concrete sample were used to study the effect of surface shape on the stress displacement relationship. The soil used in this research were compacted clay and compacted sandy clay which was prepared by artificially mixing 75% of sand and 25% of clay. It was found that the failure line of clay concrete interface is approximately linear while the response of the sandy clay concrete interface can be represented by log function. The shape of surface of concrete has a great effect on the stress-sliding displacement. It was concluded that the sliding displacement governs the clay concrete interface response and deformation displacement governs the sandy clay concrete interface response.
