The paper deals with the formulation and the finite element approximation of a quasi-static thermoviscoelastic problem which describes frictional contact between a deformable body and a rigid foundation. The contact is modeled by normal damped response condition whereas the friction is described by the Coulomb law of dry friction. The weak formulation of the model consists of a coupled system of the variational inequality for the displacement and the parabolic equation for the temperature. The main aim of this paper is to present a fully discrete scheme for numerical approximation together with an error estimation of a solution to this problem. Finally, computational simulations are performed to illustrate the mathematical model.
