The influence of pile batter, pile group spacing, soil-water content, and pile material on average negative skin friction is investigated. The influence of asphalt coating on the pile is viscosity and thickness on average negative skin friction is presented. The curves form the basis for a design method to eliminate the major portion of downdrag on pile foundations.
