Here, we present a mass-less quasi-static model of stick-slip phenomenon built exclusively on the difference between higher static and lower kinetic friction force. The model allows explaining the disappearance of stick-slip motion when elastic surface slid in contact with rigid counter-face bears large amount of small outgrowths. Adjusting the model parameters, it is also possible simulating systems with different transient responses. The results obtained may also be helpful in understanding the variety of sliding behavior of different materials.
