Study of predicting chatter has been around for many years. These studies are crucial for our understanding of machining processes and to enhance efficiency in manufacturing. This paper presents a new mechanism affecting the stability of machining process called mass induced damping. This effect is simulated numerically with tested values of initial parameters taken for impact tests of a thin-walled workpiece. Results from the simulation shows minor increment in allowable depth of cut by numerically calculated using stability lobe theory. This effect will open a new understanding how certain mechanical factors would affect the value of damping of a system.
