We consider a mathematical model which describes the quasistatic contact between a viscoelastic body and a deformable obstacle, the so-called foundation. The material’s behaviour is modelled with a viscoelastic constitutive law with long memory. The contact is frictionless and is defined using a multivalued normal compliance condition. We present a regularization method in the study of a class of variational inequalities involving history-dependent operators. Finally, we apply the abstract results to analyse the contact problem.
