The Contrastive Research of Direct Shear Test on Different Pile-Soil Interface
In order to discuss the friction resistance properties between pile and soil, three groups of shear laboratory tests of pile-soil interface are adopted among concrete-soil , steel-soil and plastic(HDPE)-soil, and each test applies six normal stresses. The result indicates that with the growth of normal stress, the shear strength of pile-soil are increased; under the same normal stress, there is little change in frontal parts of curve with shear stress and displacement, but the rest of curve have a striking change along with the increase of normal stress; when the normal stress is less, the shear stress of different interfaces have little change; when the normal stress is greater, it shows that the shear strength of HDPE-soil interface is the greatest.
