CLAY-ON-STEEL RING SHEAR TESTS AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR DISPLACEMENT PILES

This paper presents results from ring shear tests involving shearing of clay against steel interfaces. The effect of rate of shearing on the shear resistance between the soil and steel at large displacements was examined. It is shown that the rate of shearing has a significant effect on the shear resistance between soil and steel. The implications of the results for the behavior of displacement piles are discussed.
