Abstract: The resolution of the problem of interaction gravel-asphalt in embankment dams with bituminous cores requires the knowledge of interfaces behavior between these two materials. This work is a contribution in this direction. Specimens were made in the laboratory using crushed stones owing a median particle size distribution and a characteristic asphalt of the Romaine 2. The direct shear device was used to perform the tests on these samples under a constant normal stress. In addition to the effect of applied normal stress, the influences of various parameters such as temperature, shear rate and the percentage of bitumen in the interface were explored. The major conclusion that can be drawn from these tests is that the behavior of the aforementioned interface is dominated by the asphalt and the failure envelope of this interface in conditions of very low shear rate or very high temperature, passes through the origin with a friction angle equal to 38.7 °. Keywords Interface; gravel-asphalt; direct shear; shear rate; temperature; failure envelope; ACRD.
