A new model named as the coupled-oscillator model, is proposed to study the atomic-scale static friction. The Maugis-Dugdal model is used to approximately substitute the Lennard-Jones potential of the interfacial friction in new model. Then, the formulas for static friction force and coefficient calculation are deduced. A comparison between the theoretical result and the experimental value obtained by an atomic force microscope is presented to show the model and the formulas practically feasible.
