    Re: bibliography

    I googled coefficient of friction for wood, and got lots of good hits. Here's the hit list:


    THe first hit on the list looks like it will give you what you need. Have fun on the project, and welcome to the PF.

    I'm changing the title of this thread from "bibliography" to "Wood's Coefficient of Friction" -- probably just a simple mistake as you were starting the thread.

    EDIT -- Ack! Edged out by dlgoff again!
