Stick-Slip in Long Shaft Systems

Stick-slip is a phenomenon that occurs in mechanical systems where resistance to motion is due mostly to coulomb type friction. Coulomb friction is characterized by resistance that is one value when contacting surfaces are stationary relative to one another and lower when they are sliding. The threshold between static and dynamic friction forms a discontinuity which leads to a sharp change in resistance across a narrow change in relative speed. This effect can lead to…
