Spanish term or phrase: coeficiente de rozamiento terreno-cimiento
I know what it means, but I'm wondering about the word order...
Would it be "coefficient of friction (land)(ground)-foundation" or "coefficient of ground-foundation friction"?.....Help please....

Explanation:
friction coefficient between concrete and soil

or

...for concrete cast on soil.

(See refs)

Both your options are good enough:

...coefficient of friction soil-concrete

(equivalent to my second option)

...or coeficient of soil-concrete friction

(equivalent to my first option)

They mean the same. You can choose the one you like the best.
