Dear colleagues,

In my theoretical investigation I need to simulate an interaction between two
parts of a fractured bone. I am going to represent a friction force on
contacted surfaces as a simple Coulomb friction. If, on your opinion, this
representation is valid, could you suggest an appropriate value for the
coefficient of friction (with a reference, if possible).

Thank you,
