In this short communication we investigate how the non-reversible dry friction characteristics will alter the nonlinear responses of a simple mechanical oscillator, The presented approach is based on a certain mathematical description of the experimentally determined non-reversible dry friction characteristics, which causes chaotic and irregular motion of the studied system. A novelty of our idea is an introduction of the relative acceleration in description of the dry friction model. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
