In this paper, the stress wave propagation in a coupled pendulum system with friction force is discussed experimentally and numerically. The coupled system is analogous to the one dimensional fault dynamics model in seismicity. However, we will not intend to discuss about the geophysical feature of the system. The system has rich characteristics of the spatio-temporal stress wave propagation effected by nonlinear friction force. The relation between the wave propagation and the vibration of the pendulum is mainly discussed on the standpoint of nonlinear coupled system.
