Concrete bearing friction coefficient

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If a precast wall panel is bearing upon an adjacent one, one of the factors for resisting horizontal displacment would be the friction between the surfaces.  Surely this would be proportional to the weight on the bearing.  I'm trying to get a picture of the total resistance to wind load based upon mechanical fasteners and the horizontal bearing surfaces.  Any ideas?
