The aim of this work is study a dynamic contact problem between a deformable body and a foundation where the deformations are supposed to be small. The contact is with adhesion and normal compliance. The behavior of this body is modeled by a nonlinear elastic-visco-plastic law. The evolution of bonding field is described by a nonlinear differential equation. We derive a variational formulation of the contact problem and we prove the existence and uniqueness of its solution. The proof is based on the construction of three intermediate problems and then we construct a contraction mapping whose unique fixed point will be the weak solution of the mechanical problem.
