We deal with the dynamical behavior of continuous elasto-plastic model of Masing, consisting of infinite number of springs and dry-friction elements. Using theory of differential inclusions we provide existence and uniqueness result. Moreover, we prove that continuous model is the limit of the discrete Masing model when the number of degrees of freedom tends to infinity. Starting from known results of numerical analysis, we build an implicit Euler-like numerical scheme of order one.
