RE: Coefficient of Friction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
The PCI Design Handbook, Table 6.6.1, lists the "upper limit" of the static friction coefficient between steel and concrete as 0.4.  For wet conditions, reduce by 25%.  If you are relying on the friction to resist a temporary construction load, divide by 5.

Subject: Coefficient of Friction

Does anyone has a reference for the coefficient of friction between steel and concrete?  I only found the steel to steel coefficient of friction in the "civil engineering reference manual for the pe exam" by Lindeburg, 7th edition.  TIA
