material properties table

Post by vesoljc » Thu Oct 19, 2006 3:48 pm

Hello!

I did some searching on the net for an existing table of basic physic material properties like friction, restitution, etc..., but no luck for now. What I'm looking for, is a data sheet for generic materials like metal, wood, concrete, plastic, etc... I don't really need "actuall" numbers, just relations between them, ie: wood has 0.2 friction, while concrete has 0.5, etc...

tnx in advance

Hi,

here you can find some coefficients of friction:

and some coefficients of restitution:

Hope that helps,

Jan

I guess the other property you need is density.

There is a nice table of densities in Wikipedia:
