  • Abstract

This paper presents a mixed variational formulation and its discretization by finite elements of higher-order for the Signorini problem with Tresca friction. To guarantee the unique existence of the solution to the discrete mixed problem, a discrete inf-sup condition is proved. Moreover, a solution scheme based on the dual formulation of the problem is proposed. Numerical results confirm the theoretical findings.
