Abstract:

Additional attention is given to the somewhat subtle but extremely important difference between Coulomb friction and the apparently corresponding resistance to plastic deformation. It is shown that the limit theorems previously proven for assemblages of perfectly plastic bodies do not always apply when there is finite sliding friction. Theorems are developed which relate the limit loads with finite Coulomb friction to the extreme cases of zero friction and of complete attachment, and also to the case where the frictional interfaces are cemented together with a cohosionless soil.
