In energy geostructures, which exploit the heat in soil using earth contact elements, the interface is subjected to cyclic thermo-mechanical loads. Monotonic and cyclic constant-volume equivalent-undrained (CVEU) direct shear tests were performed on clay-clay and clay-structure interface at different temperatures (22 and 60 °C). Different cyclic and average stress ratios (CSR and ASR) were applied to the kaolin clay-structure interface under 300 kPa of normal stress. The results showed that, the number of cycles to failure for the clay-structure interface test was lower than that for the clay-clay case in the same range of cyclic and average shear stress ratios. In cyclic clay-structure tests, decreasing the cyclic stress ratio, increased the number of cycles to failure; however, decreasing the average shear stress ratio decreased the number of cycles to failure. Increasing the temperature, decreased the rate of strain accumulation and the number of cycles to failure increased by 2-3 times. The rate of degradation (degradation parameter, t) decreased by 16% with heating from 22 to 60 °C for the different cyclic stress ratios tested.
