Paper Title:
Mechanical Properties of Interface Between Soil-Macadam Aggregate and Concrete Pile
  Abstract

The mechanical properties of interface between soil-macadam aggregate and anti-sliding concrete pile are very important for the reinforcement design and safety evaluation of accumulative landslide in the reservoir area of Three Gorges. Soil-macadam aggregate is a complex geomaterial whose properties are totally different with soil or rock. Based on a practical landslide suffering the influence of reservoir water level change and seasonal rainfall, a series of direct shear tests are conducted to investigate the interface mechanical properties between soil-macadam aggregate and concrete pile. Accordingly, the relationship between shear strength parameters and water contents and macadam ratios is presented. The change characteristics of mechanical properties of interface are discussed. The results indicate that shearing strength, inner friction angle and cohesion decrease with less water content. However, as the increment of macadam ratios, the cohesion will decrease gradually, but the shear strength and inner friction angle of interface decrease firstly and then increase after a critical value, the change trend obeys parabolic relation.
