Abstract : The frictional response of granular binary mixtures to an applied shear stress is studied experimentally by sliding a rough plate across a granular surface. The static friction force is found to be up to 25% larger than a linear interpolation between the frictional properties of each component. The dynamical friction coefficient can exhibit a maximum, a minimum, or an oscillatory behavior as a function of mixing ratio, depending on the size ratio or shape of the two components. In addition, visualization of the granular flow makes it possible to show that the shear layer thickness and the characteristic shear displacement, over which a steady state dilation is reached, change linearly with the mass concentration.
