Machine tool chatter is formulated as self-excited random vibration with white noise forcing function. The formulation takes into account the unknown factors and random disturbances present in the cutting process when chatter occurs. Based on this formulation, a procedure for modeling chatter using the time series of sampled observations on vibration signals is developed. Feasibility of this procedure is established by modeling data obtained from a turning operation under conditions of severe chatter.
