The motion of an adiabatic piston under dry friction is investigated to clarify the roles of dry friction in nonequilibrium steady states. We clarify that dry friction can reverse the direction of the piston motion and causes a discontinuity or a cusplike singularity for velocity distribution functions of the piston. We also show that the heat fluctuation relation is modified under dry friction.
