  • The objective in this paper is to study a thermal frictional contact model. The deformable body consists of a viscoelastic material and the process is assumed to be dynamic. It is assumed that the material behaves in accordance with Kelvin-Voigt constitutive law and the thermal effect is added. The variational formulation of the model leads to a coupled system including a history-dependent hemivariational inequality for the displacement field and an evolution equation for the temperature field. In study of this system, we first consider a fully discrete scheme of it and then focus on deriving error estimates for numerical solutions. Under appropriate assumptions of solution regularity, an optimal order error estimate is obtained. At the end of this manuscript, we report some numerical simulation results for the contact problem so as to verify the theoretical results.
