The article presents the results of research on the influence of the conditions of erosion mechanical machining using a brush electrode on the formation of the surface layer properties. The physical interactions which occur in the process and affect the formation of the surface layer properties have also been described. It has been noted that it is possible to achieve compressive stress in the process by choosing proper parameters. A mathematical model and results of a simulation of the mechanical influence of a single filament on the machined surface have also been presented.Keywords: brush electrode, mechanical interaction, surface layer, roughness
