This paper presents a study of the stick-slip frictional phenomenon when large contact areas subjected to uneven contact loads are involved. The objective of the investigation is to gain better understanding of the phenomenon from experimental observations and to develop a mathematical representation that can be used for modeling, simulation and design purposes. A dynamic integral-model has been proposed and simulations have been carried out. The effects of various system parameters on the behavior of the system have been studied experimentally and analytically. The simulation results using the proposed integral-model are in good agreement with the experimental results. The latter also show that stick-slip vibrations can be influenced by the loading conditions.
