How to Calculate Shear Friction Factor?
Shear Friction Factor calculator uses Shear friction = ((Coefficient of friction between two surfaces*Total vertical force)+(Base width*Average shear of joint))/Horizontal forces to calculate the Shear friction, Shear Friction Factor the ratio of the shear stress τ on the bounding walls of the channel to the dynamic pressure of the coolant. Shear friction is denoted by S.F.F symbol.
How to calculate Shear Friction Factor using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Shear Friction Factor, enter Coefficient of friction between two surfaces (μ), Total vertical force (Σ_{v}), Base width (B), Average shear of joint (q) & Horizontal forces (ΣH) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Shear Friction Factor calculation can be explained with given input values -> 54.97143 = ((0.7*1400000)+(25*1500000))/700000.
