Analysis of two quasistatic history-dependent contact models

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider two mathematical models which describe the evolution of a viscoelastic and viscoplastic body, respectively, in contact with a piston or a device, the so-called obstacle or foundation. In both models the contact process is assumed to be quasistatic and the friction is described with a Clarke subdifferential boundary condition. The novelty of the models consists in the constitutive laws as well as in the contact conditions we use, which involve a memory term. We derive a variational formulation of the problems which is in the form of a system coupling a nonlinear integral equation with a history--dependent hemivariational inequality. Then, we prove the existence of a weak solution and, under additional assumptions, its uniqueness. The proof is based on a result on history--dependent hemivariational inequalities obtained in [18].
