Re: friction coefficient on rock

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
AASHTO table 5.5.2B gives a whole range of friction coefficients for
sliding between dissimilar materials. Mass concrete against clean sound
rock is 0.70. Formed concrete against clean sand is 0.30-0.40.

After excavation it is found that a retaining wall will be founded on solid
rock (sandstone). Can anyone give me a friction coefficient for this
condition if any?  I don’t have a reference that addresses this situation.
Thanks!
