Re: Coefficient of Friction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
>From my statics book (Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics by Beer and
Johnston), coefficient of static friction between metal and stone (don't
have between metal and concrete):  0.30-0.70

For the following website:

coefficient of friction per the Australian Bridge Design Code is 0.5.

>From an old SEAINT post:

the coefficient of friction per ACI 349-97, Appendix B is 0.4.

>From the following website:

the coefficient of friction is 0.45.

To get the websites, I did a search on Google for ["coefficient of
friction" AND steel AND concrete].  Everything in the [] brackets was my
search phrase.
