This paper deals with a challenge to apply the method of indicial response analysis for obtaining the frequency characteristics of total cutting system, tool system, and cutting zone. The feasibility of this method has been verified by simulation tests. Furthermore, linearity in cutting zone has been demonstrated to a first approximation by utilizing the proposed method. As examples of its application, on-line prediction or prevention of chatter vibration and simple evaluation of machine tool structure have been proposed.
