Dynamic frictional sliding behaviour between two homogenous Homalite blocks is studied. The blocks are initially held together using a constant compressive stress. The sliding motion is initiated by impacting one of the blocks with an external object. The resulting sliding modes are inspected. Initiation of fretting is examined by studying the opening stresses in the interface.
