A new technique for modeling stick-slip friction in mechanical systems is proposed. The technique uses an electrical circuit analysis program to analyze the electrical circuit equivalent of the mechanical system. The stick-slip characteristic can be altered to take almost any form. The method is easy to apply to a vast range of systems, and two examples are given to illustrate its validity.
