The motion of a body sliding under boundary friction, at a velocity slower than a particular critical velocity of the system, proceeds in a discontinuous or stick-slip form. This paper presents a theoretical analysis and an experimental study of the critical velocity of stick-slip sliding. The influence of various parameters such as friction, damping, stiffness, and sliding mass of the system on the critical velocity was studied on a mechanical model arranged on a milling machine. The arrangement was also simulated on an electric analog computer. Good correlation was observed between the theoretical values and the experimental results on the mechanical model and on the analog computer.
