A fixed point result with applications in the study of viscoplastic frictionless contact problems

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • Let $C(\mathbb R_+;X)$ denote the Fréchet space of continuous functions defined on $\mathbb R_+=[0,\infty)$ with values on a real Banach space $(X,$ ||$\cdot$||$_X)$. We prove a fixed point theorem for operators $\Lambda:C(\mathbb R_+;X)\to C(\mathbb R_+;X)$ which satisfy a sequence of inequalities involving an integral term. Then we consider a mathematical model which describes the frictionless contact between a viscoplastic body and a deformable foundation. The process is quasistatic and is studied on the unbounded interval of time $[0,\infty)$. We provide the variational formulation of the problem, then we use the abstract fixed point theorem to prove the existence of a unique weak solution to the model. We complete our study with a regularity result.
