A history-dependent contact problem with unilateral constraint

Abstract

We consider a mathematical model which describes the quasistatic contact between a viscoplastic body and a foundation. The contact is frictionless and is modelled with a new and nonstandard condition which involves both normal compliance, unilateral constraint and memory effects. We derive a variational formulation of the problem then we prove its unique weak solvability. The proof is based on arguments on history-dependent variational inequalities
