Friction angles for materials

Friction angles for materials

Friction angles for materials

(OP)
I need to design a tube 16" in which following materials will be transported : Aluminium blocks, wooden blocks, sand.

There is limited space to place the tube so i need the minimum angle under which the tube has to be placed.

Therefor i need the friction angles for those materials.
The tube is a steel tube.

In general i am interested in a list of properties of materials on the internet so i will be able to have an easy acces.

RE: Friction angles for materials

Are they tabulating friction angles now? I believe friction angle is the arctan mu, the coeff of friction. Look for coeff's in the handbooks, and make ref to clutch mfrs, who generally use this information.

Thx for replying.
Problem is they dont have any handbooks on such matters here....
So i have to find my own way. Hence my question for information on the internet.
