As an extension of the study presented in ISPS 2016, vibration characteristics of a commercially used head slider in hard disk drives at touchdown are analyzed by using a single degree-of-freedom (DOF) slider model, improved asperity adhesion force model, and air-bearing force model. Using parameter values at the head/disk interface, the total interfacial force was evaluated for various air bearing stiffness ratios r. Microwaviness (MW)-excited slider vibration was simulated near the boundary of instability onset (r = 2.4), and slight instability conditions at r = 2. It was found that the simulated results at r = 2.4 and 2 agree well with the touchdown vibrations of actual slider at ID and MD, respectively. The possibility of surfing recording is discussed.
