In this article, an oscillator is considered in which one of its component moves periodically and for which static friction is taken to be time-dependent. The dynamics of the oscillator are analyzed using Poincare map to find shifts between periodic and chaotic motion with the change of the model parameters (amplitude and frequency of velocity of the periodic motion and the coefficient of static friction as a function of the time of stationary contact).

Keywords: mathematical model, Poincare map, bifurcation diagram, time-dependent static friction, chaos.
